    Happy 86th Birthday to the Honolulu Museum of Art

April 21, 2013 11:00am-05:00pm
Honolulu Museum of Art

Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event information

Help the museum celebrate its 86th birthday! Make a cupcake that will last a lifetime, decorate an edible one and enjoy the sounds of the Honokaʻa Jazz Band.

Note: Activities end at 3pm


Cupcake rings with Maikaʻi Tubbs: Get festive and make wearable cupcake rings out of colored air-dry clay.

3-D Building Collages: AIA Honolulu architects and UH School of Architecture students will lead a design project where kids can decorate small cardboard boxes with cutouts of windows, doors, people and furnishings from recycled magazines. Each child will learn to visualize in three dimensions, be creative with where an opening or roof might be, and begin to understand planning for locations of items they put on the box.

Decorate a Cupcake: Kids can frost their own cupcakes before scarfing down the edible treat.
