Arts & Culture reports from HPR's Noe Tanigawa
Lily Wu was a smart, sophisticated, Chinese American detective who solved crimes in Honolulu and New York in a series of novels written by Juanita Sheridan in the 1940’s and 50’s. Local filmmaker Robin Lung wondered who the character was based on and came across a true mystery along the way. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.
Every Thursday afternoon, eight hundred to a thousand people mosey through Makeke Market at Kapolei High School.
An ambitious new music festival is taking Honolulu like a lava flow this week.
Two artists, a sculptor from Kea’au and a painter from Volcano, have brought some Hawai’i Island synergy to the Koa Gallery at Kapi’olani Community College. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.
Early on there were kapa loin cloths, then palaka work shirts. It wasn’t until the 1930’s, that Hawai’i clothing manufacturers began to design fabrics and fashions for modern life in the Islands. The aloha shirt was born and marketed, and movie stars and public figures jumped on the bandwagon.
