Honolulu Museum of Art
Join docent Millie Liu for a tour of Light from Shadow: Gold in Japanese Art. Of all the materials used in the arts, perhaps none is as sumptuous, and carries as much significance as gold. Organized in honor of the 30th anniversary of the elegant Halekulani luxury resort, the exhibition Light From Shadow: Gold in Japanese Art includes several of the most important Japanese works of art in the museum's collection, ranging from early Buddhist art to later Japanese paintings—all rich with gold. The tour is followed by an art discussion over a glass of iced tea in the café. Visitors meet the docent at the entrance to the museum.
Free with museum admission.
