There is more than meets the eye for anyone who visits the exhibition Art Deco in Hawai‘i, on view through Jan. 11. Behind the scenes are anecdotes and histories; some significant and others just for fun. DeSoto Brown will share some of these, along with analysis of a few pieces in the exhibition for a deeper understanding of them.
