COMMITTED TO THE ARTS & CULTURE OF HAWAII

The Halekulani Fine Art Collection

Envisioned especially for the “House Befitting Heaven”, the Halekulani Fine Art Collection embodies elegance, sublime simplicity, and graciously invites our guests to indulge in an elevated art experience featuring a curated selection of local art legends and rising contemporary artists.

From the healing waters of Kawehewehe, to the soul of the kiawe tree, each piece in the Halekulani Fine Art Collection tells a story; Each a visual poem for the eyes that speaks to the spirit of a house befitting heaven. From George Nakashima’s show at the Hau Terrace, to the nebulous forms of John Koga to the ethereal elegance of Tadashi Sato’s underwater scenes, all the art at Halekulani offers an experience of that which we may only be familiar with as an intangible feeling at first. What may be understood as an artist’s abstraction of reality, is an opportunity to see from other perspectives and an invitation to view what is normally unseen or inaccessible to the naked eye.

Curated by Christina May Ho of consulting firm Island Art Advisory and CMHO Fine Art, the collection comprises masterpieces by renowned artists whose work is housed in top museums around the world while also featuring works providing insight into the thriving local art scene.
