During the week of the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival from November 3 to November 10, the exhibit will be on display every day from 10am to 2pm. Exploring the fine artistry and aesthetic beauty which emerged from work in the coffeeland of Kona, this exhibit elevates the utilitarian through the presentation of original art and objects inspired by coffee culture and heritage. Objects typically prized for their function, many which were essential for coffee work and life, are celebrated here for their exquisite craftsmanship and design elements. This diverse arrangement of works includes lauhala, calligraphy, woodcut, sculpture, sashiko, photography, textiles and more. It will be on display alongside “The Kona Coffee Story: Along the Hawaii Belt Road” inside the H.N. Greenwell Store Museum in Kealakekua. $5 admission with $2 discount with Kona Coffee Cultural Festival button. This event has been generously supported by the Hawaii State Foundation of Culture and the Arts and a donation in remembrance of Saburo and Kikue Yamato. Additional support was provided by Kona Frame Shop.
