A boldly-hued glass installation at Honolulu airport is the work of Kōloa artist Carol Bennett

Andriana Simone

If you’ve been to Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport recently, you’ve probably seen the new five-story rental car facility. It’s also the latest site of a new art piece, a boldly-hued immersive glass installation. It’s the work of Kōloa painter and glass artist Carol Bennett. She has more than 100 large-scale art pieces under her belt ranging from public art to corporate commissions.

The Conversation sat down with Bennett to talk about the innovative processes she utilizes in the design of the 20 glass totems that make up what she’s named “The Ahupuaʻa/Laulima.”
This interview aired on The Conversation on Dec. 21, 2021. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.

Lillian Tsang is the senior producer of The Conversation. She has been part of the talk show team since it first aired in 2011. Contact her at ltsang@hawaiipublicradio.org.
