Reflect: Community Voices


Eighteen Community Voices respondents from different backgrounds and professions across Honolulu provided reflections on the works in the Reflect installation. Individual participants were invited by the museum to select a work of art in the exhibition and interpret it from the perspective of their own lives. The collective array of diverse voices and each individual response underscores the infinite number of approaches and interpretations possible when considering a work of art, along with reinforcing the vital role of our community in broader museum conversations.


Audio recordings


Community Voices audio recordings are accessible through QR codes on each artwork label in the gallery. Through this process of storytelling and community response, the installation introduces new frames of reference from which to reflect upon experiences of the past, as well as the present moment.
