The Hawai'i State Art Museum is a little-known gem in Honolulu. It focuses mostly on Hawai'i artists and the state aggressively buys the best examples from local galleries and exhibitions. The museum is small so it only takes two hours or so to go through it. There is an excellent cafe on the bottom floor and a sculpture garden outside. The building originally housed one of the first hotels in Honolulu and is worth seeing on its own. Below is a gallery of ceramics that have been on display recently. For more information about the museum, go to the following: http://sfca.hawaii.gov/ and click on "Visitors" on the right side. The museum is open from 10:00am to 4:00pm Tuesday through Saturday and is closed on Sunday, Monday and all state and federal holidays. Admission is free.
