Honolulu Museum of Art


Event Information:

Meet the artists who are in the exhibition Hawai‘i Art Now. Each Wednesday from Feb 15 to April 18, we offer an encounter with an artist who is in Hawai‘i Art Now. A docent will lead you on a tour of the show, where an artist will be on hand to discuss his or her work. This week's artist is Dorothy Faison Meder.

Her statement about her work in the exhibition:

These works are from The Lawnboat Chronicles, the historical and ironic narrative I created on the global environmental impact of lawns, movements of species, and the Hawaiian Sandalwood trade. I also founded The Lawnboat Historical Society and its website Lawnboats.com, where the film The Lawnboat Chronicles gives an overview of the Lawnboat history.
