    Some of Honolulu’s most engaging art exhibits have been created around the education focus at Spalding House in Makiki, the site of the former Contemporary Museum.  With a newly refurbished café and gift shop, Spalding House is an especially fun discovery for families.   HPR’s Noe Tanigawa offers a tour through the current exhibit, “Inquiring Finds: the Science Behind Art”.

Sunday May 18th is a free Family Day at the Honolulu Museum including at Spalding House.  Activities, storytelling, games, and the exhibit will be open for view.  “Inquiring Finds: the Science Behind Art”, continues at Spalding House in Makiki through July 6.
