     Native Hawaiian poet Wayne Westlake died 30 years ago, but an exhibit on now at Windward Community College makes the point that his work continues to goad and inspire.  HPR’sNoeTanigawa reports.

“Down on the Sidewalk in Waikiki:  The Westlake Art Invitational” continues through July 3rd at  Gallery ‘Iolani, Windward Community College.  The gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday 1-5pm.   Find a collection of Wayne Westlake's poetry and a CD of readings at Na Mea Hawai'i/Native Books.   

For more on the Gallery 'Iolani exhibition.
