Get into the aloha spirit during these festive summer evenings, and celebrate the rich cultural artistry of the Hawaiian Islands with an after-hours viewing of Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i in the Art Gallery and Conservatory. Don your best aloha shirt and join us on the Conservatory Lawn for interactive hula lessons that blend storytelling with rhythm and motion. Illuminated installations by contemporary Hawaiian-Chinese sculptor Mark Chai set the scene for a rotating lineup of live music and interactive lei-making demonstrations, where you can craft your own lei pin. Then unwind and enjoy an array of refreshments for purchase—from poke bowls to our signature cocktail, Passiflora Punch.
