Watercolorist and instructor Dawn Yoshimura is preparing her students of the Palama Settlement Kupuna Art Program for the debut of their MOXIE Art Exhibition at Hawaiʻi Pacific University, Kāneʻohe campus. The MOXIE Exhibition will run from Sunday, November 19 to Friday, December 29, at the Hawaiʻi Pacific University Art Gallery, open during the business hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
MOXIE, the ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage, is a trait that best defines, and exists within each of our senior program participants. Throughout the pandemic, the students in the Kūpuna Art Program here at Palama Settlement kept busy and tried to stay connected, navigating through the unfamiliarity of virtual learning, which were both challenging and foreign to our seniors. This art exhibition tells their stories and how they have navigated through the unprecedented times with moxie.
Please join us at the Opening Reception on Sunday, Nov. 19th 2023
2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
