EXHIBITIONS + EVENTS

EXHIBITIONS EXHIBITIONS

The Art Gallery, the larger of the two exhibition spaces with a footprint of 4,400 square feet, presents a varied program ranging from contemporary exhibitions featuring works by local and international artists to thematic exhibitions of art historically significant works. Exhibitions are periodically supported by catalogs. Programming for exhibitions includes lectures by artists and scholars, symposia, films, and tours. Annually 50,000 people visit the Gallery and participate in its public programs. Additionally, the Gallery organizes traveling exhibitions, many of which have been presented at more than 100 museums in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, and Guam. directions

The Commons Gallery rotates smaller exhibitions on a weekly basis and acts a laboratory for students and faculty to experiment with exhibition design and practices of display. Curators, gallery staff, graduate students, faculty, and visiting artists work in conjunction with undergraduate students in courses like Exhibition Design and Gallery Management (ART 360) to undertake exhibition planning from start to finish. The result is a dynamic and varied exhibition program created by students and faculty for the University of Hawai'i academic community. directions

GalleryHNL is a partnership between Mark & Carolyn Blackburn and the UHM Department of Art & Art History, in cooperation with Sanford Hasegawa. Through an innovative array of formats, GalleryHNL introduces the world to the work of selected artists affiliated with the department and provides them with representation. A portion of the sales and commissions is returned to the department to support its many activities and programs. GalleryHNL serves the talented artists who call Hawai'i home, and provides much-needed financial support to their home base.


john young museum of art JOHN YOUNG MUSEUM OF ART

Endowed with a starter collection of artworks, the John Young Museum of Art opened in Krauss Hall in 1999 to enhance the knowledge and appreciation of art, and to further art education at the University for the benefit of students and the community. Greeting the visitor at the entry of the Museum is a 1976 portrait of John Young by the eminent contemporary artist and Stanford University professor Nathan Oliveira. In the courtyard, water flows down a rock wall into a water garden designed by Betsy Sakata. The reflecting pool hosts a Thai Buddha image that once graced John Young's home on the slopes of Diamond Head. (The museum will be closed for roof and facility maintenance beginning May 17, 2013.) directions
