    It was a wonderful night that all enjoyed!
    I found out it's going to be an event every 3 months, with different music and restaurants represented. Pretty cool!

    There's another thread concerning "Artifacts and the Bishop Museum"
    This is not the place for that. Though you may have a valid position.

    Took the family to Bishop Museum today. I didn't even know it was Family Sunday (which we usually avoid, because of the crowds), but because we lucked out with parking, we checked it out anyway.

    The current visiting exhibit is "Grossology: The Impolite Science of the Human Body." More than you ever wanted to know about burps, farts, zits, boogers... every kids' favorite parts of any kids' movie, packed into a bright, noisy, hands-on adventure!



    Also got a gander at the new projection globe at the planetarium. (Can you tell us more about that thing, MM?) And among the exhibitors on the Great Lawn was the Waikiki Aquarium, ImaginAsian TV, and someone selling Bath & Body Works stuff. But Bank of Hawaii was the people's choice, with their free strawberry smoothie/floats.

    Unhappy Re: Bishop Museum Events & Exhibits

    Hello All,

    From what I've been told by the higher-ups Sunday July 8, 2006 the Museum will be officially free to everyone, because they're shutting down Hawaiian Hall for renovations. That's all hope to see you all there, bummers I have to work.

    Took the family to check out the latest visiting exhibit at Bishop Museum's Castle Building: "Brain: The World Inside Your Head." Obviously they meant the typical person's head, because if it was my head, it'd be a pretty empty building. I've posted photos at Flickr.



    My favorite display? The fake brain activity meter that had a disclaimer saying it was fake, but you'd have guessed that already since the fancy screen was covered up by a giant Windows 98 clock control panel. Heh.

    If you're a fan of indigenous art (come on, who isn't?), don't miss the Mai Ka PIKO Mai exhibition that opened this past weekend and runs until April '08...



    http://www.bishopmuseum.org/

    From the website:
    In June of 2007, more than 100 indigenous artists from throughout the world gathered in Waimea, Hawai‘i to individually and collectively create works of art.

    Organized by the Keomailani Hanapi Foundation, the gathering resulted in over 130 new artworks.

    This exhibition is but a small reflection of these forces: diverse yet unified, physical yet spiritual, an ancient dialogue spoken in the language of today.

    The latest traveling exhibit is "Animal Grossology" is open.
    http://www.bishopmuseum.org/exhibits/onexhibit.html

    I love the new "Picture Gallery". The room was set up similar in 1891, went through changes and then recently remodeled back to it's original use and feeling. You may take (non-flash) photos in there!

    Check out the photos below. Click on photo to enlarge and read.

    As I said elsewhere, Mom, my sister and I were there Monday. BJ, DeSoto and Betty took us around. It's spectacular. It's got books of photos you can page through when you're done looking at the paintings on the wall and the exhibits in the cases, nice comfy benches, and wonderful interiors.

    For those who need help with accessibility, there's even a lift to take wheelchairs down from the elevator level to the Gallery level.

    Here's an article about the rebuilding of the Hale Pili (Grass House) in Hawaiian Hall at the Bishop Museum. I've been watching the whole process and joking around with the people doing it. The original is over 200 years old.

    Check out the links to video and photos too!

    Here's a very sad "Event" that has happened at the museum...
    www.honoluluadvertiser.com/article

    "In a startling shake-up yesterday at the Bishop Museum, Timothy E. Johns, president and CEO, said that 6 percent of the institution's staff — 14 positions — had been cut, including management and non-management personnel.

    Two of the museum's top executives — its chief financial officer and its general counsel — also tendered their resignations, although it's not known if those departures were related to the layoffs.

    Johns, who took over the top job in August, said the staff cuts were made because of the challenging economic climate facing the state and the community. (and more...)"

    Hey, MM!

    I've got a friend who is working on a Hawaiian song collection, and a couple of musicians have encouraged him to donate a copy to the Bishop Museum.

    Any idea who would be best for him to contact? Mahalo!
