Schedule of Events


Saturday Events and Reception

On Saturday, October 26, the Museum will be humming with youth art activities placed throughout the Museum and the classroom during its extended hours. A.B. will demonstrate impasto, a painting technique using a palette knife rather than a brush. Ohana Halau Hula will liven the celebrations with hula dancing, hula instruction, and educational pieces on hula dancing and Hawaiian culture.


Plan on visiting during mealtimes? Treat yourself to a quick bite for lunch and dinner. From 10am-2pm, enjoy the Hawaiian and Polynesian cuisine from Mo’s Hut Food Truck, and from 4-7pm enjoy the Hawaiian cuisine from Noble House Hawaiian Food Truck.


The festival will conclude with a reception on the evening of Saturday, October 26, from 4-6pm. The reception will be guests’ last chance to see the Makk family artwork recently loaned to the Museum in the exhibit: “Makk Family: A Vision of Life”. It will also feature a Makk Show & Sale from 4-5pm, where the public is invited to view new work brought all the way from Makk Studios in Hawaii! Come purchase an exquisite and unique piece for your collection!


The public reception will be followed by a special, member only “Makk Talk” from 5-6pm where members can get to know Eva and A.B and more about his multi-generational family of artists and their world-wide adventures in art.


Admission to the Museum, the reception, and activities within the Museum are free of charge.
