“Most people will literally do anything to avoid thinking about death. It is probably THE taboo in our society. I do not have any answers to the questions that philosophers have been thinking about for centuries, but I wanted to create an environment that explores some of my feelings on the subject matter.” -Monika Mann
Mann has been a working artist on the Big Island for 25 years. Her exhibit in the makai gallery features a mixed media installation using a variety of materials.
This event is free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours 10:00 am - 4:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday. For additional information please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: (808) 961-5711
