The Artist: Alex Barnes (Dana Point, CA)
Impact:10% of proceeds from the sale of “Seasons" will go to the Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawai‘i's culture hub. Founded in 1922, their mission has been to create relevant and transformative experiences through the study, preservation, presentation and creation of art. The museum’s permanent collection has grown from 500 works to more than 50,000 pieces spanning 5,000 years, with significant holdings in Asian art, American and European painting and decorative arts, 19th- and 20th-century art, an extensive collection of works on paper, Asian textiles, and traditional works from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.
Given his use of the tiki faces and symbology, Alex chose to support the museum with his design because it felt like an appropriate way to help give back the Hawaiian culture and heritage.
