We cherish these opportunities to spend time with our extended ʻohana, and hope that you’ll join us for two very special events this month – The Vengeful Sword at Kennedy Theatre and the annual BFA Exhibition at the Art Gallery.


The Reformer’s Brush: Modernity and Traditional Media in China

University of Hawaiʻi Art Gallery
Art Building University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Reformers Brush ExhibitionThis exhibition, set to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1911 revolution in China, showcases approximately 60 to 80 works of Chinese calligraphy and painting from Honolulu collections. The selected works illustrate the ways in which those who participated in the various movements to modernize China through the 19th and early 20th centuries made use of these traditional art forms to reflect their ambitions for reform. The artists, who include painters as well as political, military, social, and educational leaders, took part in the reform movements that resulted in the 1911 revolution and the founding and shaping of the new Republic.
