As part of our visual arts program, Kahilu Exhibits annually presents the Waimea All Schools Exhibit in partnership with the Waimea Education Hui. This year’s theme, which students were asked to respond to, is: He Wai E Ola, E Ola Nō A—Water is Sacred, Water is Our Responsibility, Water is Life. Students from grades pre-K to 12 were invited to participate, as well as faculty and parents. The criteria for participating artists are that they attend a school in Waimea, including being homeschooled here, and work can be in any media. Waimea All Schools Exhibit is the vision of Waimea Education Hui; their intention is to bring members of all schools in Waimea together through this event.

As part of this year's exhibit we will be honoring and including artwork and information about the Hawai'i Island built sailing canoe, Makali'i's current project, Hanauna Ola - Sustaining the Generations through Voyaging. The project's goal is to restore and perpetuate Hawaiian cultural knowledge and practices that support physical, spiritual, psychological health and well being. As a culmination of this project, Makali'i will embark on a 1,300 nautical mile voyage to the islands of Nihoa and Makumamamama, conduct reconnection ceremonies, and sail home safely. 


Another special addition to the exhibit this year, is the art work from He Wai e Ola, a 12 week community art course taught by Scott Plunkett and sponsored by KALO and Mauna Kea Education and Awareness.

Participating schools are:  Waimea Middle School, Hawai’i Preparatory Academy, Parker School, Kanu O’Ka Aina New Century Charter School, Pūnana Leo O Waimea, Kamehameha Preschool, and Homeschoolers.

Kahilu Galleries are free and open to the public Monday thru Friday, from 9am – 1pm, and during all performances. For more information, email gallery@kahilutheatre.org or call (808) 885-6868.
