ArtSpree is an annual one-day arts festival at Spalding House in lush Makiki Heights. This year marks its 20th anniversary. Families can make a whole day of it, getting immersed in art projects, lounging under trees and taking in dance and music acts, and having a leisurely plein-air lunch.
This year ArtSpree’s focus takes its cue from the upcoming Spalding House exhibition Now Hear This, which explores the kinship of music and art and features works by Joan Miró, Wassily Kandinsky, James Whistler, Onchi Koshiro, Harry Bertoia, Jean Charlot, and Peter Chamberlain. Visitors can experience musical performances, create their own instruments, and learn how to play them. The popular Spalding House Café will feature a special ArtSpree menu with kid-friendly choices (see below).
ArtSpree is generously sponsored by E.M.L. Partners. Additional support provided by Friends of Honolulu Museum of Art, and Starbucks Coffee Company, Whole Foods Market Kahala, and Electric Pencil.
HAVE DOUBLE THE FUN
This summer, for the first time, the Honolulu Museum of Art holds its monthly Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday on the same day. What this means for the public is a double dose of fun, art, performances, and food. Take a free shuttle down the hill!
