Elizabeth Baxter is curator for the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. She’s the mastermind behind “Altered States," the exhibit now at the Hawai’i State Art Museum.

The Aloha Friday Conversation caught up with Baxter for a swing through the show, including Ryan Higa's piece "What Mostever" — as seen above.

"Altered States is not COVID-themed. It's just about artists and their unique perspectives and alternative visions of the world. So some of the pieces are really old, and some of them have never been seen, but it's all from the Art in Public Places Collection," Baxter said.

The exhibit is open free Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The featured artists are Andrew Binkley, Sachelle Dae, Isami Doi, Francis Dubois, Sally French, Ryan Higa, Renee Iijima, Sarah Martinsen, Lloyd Menard, Hiroki Morinoue, Michelle Schwengel, Madeline Soder, James Surls, Masami Teraoka, Lauren Trangmar, Tom Walker, Donna Westerman, William Williams, and Scott Yoell.

This interview aired on The Aloha Friday Conversation on Sept. 24, 2021.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
