Honolulu Museum of Art

 

Welcome, Docents!

ALL SCHOOL TOURS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED THROUGH MAY 31, 2020

While the Museum is closed, here's an activity:
Join the FDFD fun of sharing your at home artwork recreation. Rules: 1) create a work of art inspired by the HoMA collection or an exhibition; 2) tell why you chose it; and 3) share a little about the art/artist. They will be posted here!

Black Zag X   
Louise Nevelson
Black Zag X, 1969, Wood, paint, and formica
39 3/4 x 38 in. (101 x 96.5 cm)
Gift of the Estate of the Honorable Clare Booth Luce, 1988 (5719.1)

I love Louise Nevelson's use of found objects to create a composition of light and dark areas. These are the things I "found" around my house. Cheers : )

Penelope has strength, grace and beauty. Her meditative stance calms me every time I pass by her. I love that she has such a place of honor at HoMA! My Penelope was inspired by my vase and Manoa greenery.
