Ritz Carlton Maui's Celebration of the Arts

March 29 & 30 at Picture-Perfect Kapalua

Every Spring, the Ritz Carlton Kapalua on Maui presents an astonishing array of cultural offerings over the course of a storybook weekend under the event title "Celebration of the Arts." While perched on a pine tree laden hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and neighboring isles of Lanai and Molokai, Celebration of the Arts is an incredible opportunity to delve into multiple aspects of Hawaiian culture.

Tag the Town: Hawaii Graffiti Artists Demo Skills

In the late 1970s, a new art form was born on urban the streets of Manhattan. Young kids—often frustrated with convention—armed with spray cans “tagged” the cold steel of dormant subway cars and buildings in shadowy alleys, only to emerge as the sun rose as roving artwork embraced on the streets. Some of these artists went on to lucrative design careers; others went to jail. Now, twelve top graffiti artists in Hawai‘i will compete in the “Estria Invitational Graffiti Battle” at the Honolulu Academy of Arts at Linekona Art Center this Saturday, Sept. 3, from noon to 7:00 p.m.
