The final days to experience the Pūʿolo exhibit have arrived as Thursday, June 27th will be the final day of the exhibit.

Open since last December, thousands of guests have visited the exhibit which explores Kona’s cultural diversity through the concept that the diverse people who call Kona their “home” brought—and continue to bring—their “gifts,” which, among many things, include knowledge, traditions and values.

The exhibit features historic photographs, artifacts, and documents as well as contemporary art commissioned for this special exhibit. Artists include Gerald Lucena, Hiroki, Setsuko and Miho Morinoue and Conall Kahakaʿio Ravenscraft.

The exhibit venue will close on July 1st and will re-open on July 29th as the H.N. Greenwell Store Museum exhibit which presents the Store as it was in the 1890s.
