Pictured above: The Hawaii Museum of Contemporary Art. At some point, we used to call this the East Hawaii Cultural Center, but I wasn't paying attention and the name was changed. I will probably continue to call it the East Hawaii Cultural Center, because I'm getting older, and that's what we do -- call locations by their original names. Really old folks around here call KTA "The Tokeshi Store" which can also be confusing. Comedian Frank DeLima tells a very funny story about that, if you ever get a chance to see his show.
Anyway, thank goodness for Mr. L, without whom I would be devoid of culture. He drags me occasionally to art exhibits, concerts, and generally keeps me from spending all my free time on Twitter. Yesterday we viewed the 28th Annual Trash Show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (see, I am practicing). First amazing thing: 28 years. That's impressive. Second amazing thing: IT WAS SO COOL. The show's title kinda put me off ("trash") but one man's trash . . . right? And I would be thrilled to own some of the pieces. I made a slideshow of my favorites, below. The museum is located at 141 Kalakaua Street in Hilo. This show runs until October 28th.
