Since its opening in 1927, the Honolulu Museum of Art (formerly the Honolulu Academy of Arts) has exhibited and interpreted the works of Hawai‘i’s most significant artists, and has enjoyed sustained relationships with its most active arts organizations.
Beginning in 1928, the museum has been publishing a news bulletin and calendar for museum members. With the exception of five years during the 1950s during which it was strictly a calendar, the publication presents research on collections, interviews with artists, and articles about exhibitions and programs—many of which are written by museum curators and guest curators.
The publication’s consistent documentation of these activities reveals how Hawai‘i’s artists and arts communities—as well as the institution itself—have responded to changing social, cultural, economic, ecological, and political contexts over the span of nearly 90 years.
This program was supported in part by a grant from the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities.
