Mānoa Arts & Minds

Aloha!

Don’t let April showers keep you from venturing to the Mānoa campus for an impressive mix of Mānoa Arts & Minds exhibits, shows and performances in the Spring 2013 semester. We thank the creative energies of our four partners – the UH Mānoa Departments of Art & Art History, Music, and Theatre & Dance, as well as Outreach College – for cultivating such thoroughly enjoyable community activities.

Phoebe Cummings

UH Art Gallery, UH Mānoa Campus
February 24 – April 5
(opening reception on Sunday, February 24 from 3:00 – 5:00pm)

Phoebe CummingsWorking predominantly from unfired clay, Phoebe Cummings constructs pieces directly on site as temporary installations or interventions within a place. Both material and process are of particular significance to Cummings; her intensive labor of making is heightened by the ephemerality of the work’s existence. Often the pieces come to exist only as a photograph or memory. Cummings will be developing a site-specific installation in the UH Art Gallery.

Gallery hours

Monday–Friday 10:30–5:00pm; Sunday 12:00–5:00pm. Closed holidays and Saturdays.
