First Fridays at the Museum: Opening Reception for Skirting Issues Exhbition

Join us for the April First Fridays at the Museum in which we will celebrate the opening of our latest exhibition, Skirting Issues: Hula Moves Stateside. This event will take place in person at the museum on Friday, April 7 from 6-8 pm. 

Not only is it a great time to view the exhibition, you'll also have the opportunity to meet the exhibition's guest curator, Amy Kuʻuleialoha Stillman and Kumu Hula Kealiʻi Ceballos, lender to the exhibition. They will share aspects of the hula tradition in an interactive program of Hawaiian culture. You will learn to pronounce Hawaiian words; gain insight into meanings behind some hula gestures, view a hula dance and engage in talk story about their lives in hula.

The presentation and demonstration will run from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. 

Skirting Issues is also complementary to our Tall Tiki Tales: Catalina as a South Seas Island exhibition. 

A specialty cocktail, wine, beer, soda and water will be available for purchase. 

This event is free for members and children (15 & under with an adult). $10 for not-yet-members. Members: Even though it is free, we ask that you please register.
