Shangri La Museum Opens an Electrifying New Exhibition: #8x8_shangrila_22

The Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design today opened #8x8_shangrila_22, an exhibition that invited eight visual artists and eight performing artists residing in Hawaii’s 808 area code to create new work responding to the theme of connection in eight gallery spaces at the museum. The electrifying show includes some of the state’s most acclaimed artists with diverse set of mediums, from hula to taiko drums, from glass sculpture to watercolor.

“#8x8_shangrila_22 speaks to the connections that have been forged during two tragic and disruptive waves of the pandemic,” said Konrad Ng, Executive Director Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture and Design. “The show is an artistic tribute to the enduring spirit of Hawai`i and its people.”

The exhibition, #8x8_shangrila_22, is viewable during tours of Shangri La and online. For more information about the exhibition and how to purchase tickets, please visit the museum website:
