Published on

The building was based on the plan, designed by Bertram Goodhue. It layout reminds one of an ancient Roman countryside villa, with several courtyard surrounded by exhibition rooms, with low roofs. Its collection features painting by van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet, the American artists, with emphasize of paintings connected to Hawaii. Because of its racial diversity of Hawaii, it also houses a collection of traditional South Asia & South Asian art, together with Chinese, Japanese and Hawaian art. It also used as a venue for contemporary arts. I particularly enjoyed getting acquaintance of art connected to Hawaii.
