Arts & Culture reports from HPR's Noe Tanigawa
ShareThisArtist, author, Van James has written simple, user-friendly guides to the ancient sites of Hawai’i Island, Maui, Moloka’i and Lana’i. Late last year, Bishop Museum Press re-issued his book, Ancient Sites of O’ahu. James' books are thoughtfully prepared, keeping in mind the sensitive nature of these sites.
ShareThisThe opera season in Honolulu is ending on a high note with a grand production of Verdi’s La Traviata. In light of the Honolulu Symphony’s bankruptcy, these could have been the final symphonic performances of the year. A ray of hope, however, has appeared on the horizon.
ShareThisAaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring is one of America’s iconic pieces of music. Originally it was a ballet score designed for chamber orchestra. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa found that a new collaboration is breathing fresh life into the ballet. Chamber Music Hawai’I presents Prokofiev, Strauss, and a new interpretation of Copland’s Appalachian Spring by the Onium Ballet Project.
ShareThisDutch graphic designer, Irma Boom, creates intimate experiences in the form of books. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa found she also reflects the vibrant attitude of the Netherlands’ design culture. Boom is currently in residence at UH Manoa through the Art Department’s Intersections Program. She will present an illustrated public lecture Wednesday February 23rd, 6pm, in the Art Auditorium.
ShareThisPOW WOW is an international meeting of creative minds, guerilla style, going on now in Kaka’ako. Live artmaking through Saturday will culminate in an all-media dance party Saturday night. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa visited the scene. To be a part of POW WOW 2010, stop by Fresh Café on Queen Street. Late afternoons into the evenings are recommended.
