Dance, Surf and Poi: A Hawaii Shade

This is one of six window shades created for the theatre in the Hollywood Wing of Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ.  The theme of the six shades is music and dance which are all rendered in an art deco or cubist style.  Each shade contains a central figure portraying a different country or region inspired by the classic four continents theme.

Hawai'i: The Royal Isles

A view of the arts and crafts native to Hawaiian culture—first as they evolved over five hundred years without outside influence, and then as they developed following the introduction of Western culture. Among the ceremonial objects on view are feather capes worn by Hawaiian kings, hand-carved bowls, images, calabashes, tapa cloths, and shell and ivory ornaments. Organized by Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum of Honolulu. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and United Airlines.
