This weekend, I went to an art collaboration with five artists at the Wailoa Center in downtown Hilo. At the entrance you are drawn immediately to this free floating cascade of 1001 cranes and want to be immersed in all the colors, forms and patterns presented.
The light and colors pull you in to reach out and admire these paper objects up close and personal.
At a closer view you see that there is a story - and it says that the cranes are made with love and are dedicated to the local Hilo Hospice with any donations. You can take home a whole strand of these lovely pieces home and then leave a nice string/donation card to claim your art piece that you would like to take with you.
It was a very nice gesture ...very simple, yet profound.
It is amazing how the curator, blended so many complementary forms of arts to include a silk/textile artists, a landscape painter, a wood sculpture/wood worker, a cement/sculpture and a glass artist. The Wailoa Center is a beautiful art center with a huge volcano like fountain jutting out into the middle of the open courtyard, really unique and powerful.
If your in Hilo town, come and visit the show at the Wailoa Center, its open for the month.
