Mughal

March 2, 2009

Dropped by the Mughal event at the Honolulu Academy of Art, my first encounter with the Art After Dark monthly parties. The Academy is an ideal venue, with its traditional Hawaiian facade a gateway to a number of courtyards and galleries. A true exploratory experience for the first time visitor (me). With bars and dining available in each pavilion, live music and painting, as the sun sinks below the horizon and the locals pack into the halls and open spaces, the Academy begins to pulse with life. Somehow I missed the exhibit of Indian miniatures that was the thematic centerpiece of the event, but I did peruse a couple galleries that respectively housed an intriguing collection of abstract pieces and a modest but impressive collection of early modernist artists (all big names accounted for).
