The Hawaii works by painter Georgia O’Keeffe and photographer Ansel Adams will be featured in a special exhibition at the Honolulu Museum of Art beginning Friday.
O’Keeffe traveled to the islands in 1939 to create advertising illustrations for Hawaii Pineapple Co. (now Dole). Adams first visited in 1948 to make images for the Department of the Interior. He returned in 1957 at the behest of a Honolulu bank.
“The Hawaii Pictures” at the Honolulu Museum of Art will include 12 of O’Keeffe’s paintings and 56 Adams photographs. They’ll be on display until Jan. 12.
The museum, 900 S. Beretania St. in Honolulu, is open daily except Mondays. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 4-17.
