Culmination in Makawao 

The students and extended ‘ohana of Samuel E. Kalama Intermediate School in Makawao, Maui celebrated the dedication of a stainless steel sculpture titled Culmination on Thursday, April 28, 2016.

Artist Matthew Salenger worked with students at Kalama Intermediate School as an Artist in Residence to visualize what they value about their island's history, culture and environment. The sculpture speaks to how "all of us are the culmination of everything that has come before us." 

Culmination depicts the demi-god Maui pulling on the sun to slow it down, surrounded by flowing wai (fresh water) and kukui leaves. The left shows what the first people to arrive brought to the Hawaiian islands. On the right is what has been brought since. Images at the top were generated by students.

Artist Matthew Salenger was born and raised in upcountry Maui, and now lives in Arizona.
The Art in Public Places — Artists in Residence Program was established to integrate the visual arts in education while also providing commissioned works of art in public schools. The program is a collaboration between the Department of Education and HSFCA.
Museum-goers chat with artists and view the artworks on display at the opening reception for HiSAM's newest exhibition Ho‘omau: The Perpetuation of Kapa.

"Finding Balance" at the 2016 Teaching Artist Institute
70 teaching artists and arts administrators attended the 2016 Teaching Artist Institute, “Finding Balance,” on March 17 at Hanahauoli School and March 18 at HiSAM. This was the fourth annual institute offered as professional development for SFCA’s Artists in the Schools roster of teaching artists. The first day, groups rotated through three sessions: “Asking Questions to Develop Creativity,” “Assessment,” and a “fishbowl” conversation protocol.  On the second day, artist Garnett Puett, whose honeycomb sculpture Chief is in the Ewa Gallery, was the keynote speaker.  Participants were then led through an Art Bento-type experience by fellow teaching artists who work in that program.  Art Bento is HiSAM’s program for elementary schools that actively engages students in responding to artworks on view.
