Kipaipai Fellows 2020 will be an all-media curated exhibition from September 25 to November 8, 2020 installed in the newly renovated Simperman Gallery and the Hamakua Gallery at the Kahilu Theatre. Museum Manager and Curator at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Andi Campognone will curate the exhibit. Campognone says, "I have invited all of the Kipaipai Fellows, including faculty, that work or live in Hawai’i to participate in the Kahilu exhibit. I would like to see these artists go big, either in scale of work or in concept, to get the artists to stretch their practice. I want this show to be an additional exercise in the Kipaipai philosophy. I will be doing virtual studio visits with Hawai'i artists leading up to the exhibit."

Kipaipai, meaning 'to encourage and inspire', is a professional development program co-founded and led by Andi Campognone. The program focuses on professional practices in areas of gallery representation and museum exhibitions, self-promotion, use of social media in promotion, the importance of relevant critical writing, presentation and identifying and strategizing personal and professional goals.
