Vocano Art Center is the Place to Go!

 Aloha Kakou and Happy Chinese New Year 2011!
 Yes, as of yesterday (Feb. 3) it's the Rabbit Year so I hope this will bring everyone prosperity and happiness, as we all deserve it!
It was a beautiful day at Volcano yesterday... blue sky and green indigenous forest and birds chirping. So peaceful up there. And when you do come up to Volcano, you can see all this beauty at the Volcano Art Center at Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village right before you go into the Hawai'i Volcano National Park.

2月3日に 旧正月を迎えたハワイ島からアロ~ハ!
正式に卯年になり、皆様の繁栄と幸せをお祈りしております♪
昨日はヴォルケーノは珍しく晴天!さわやかな青空と新鮮な空気、緑豊かな森林にそこに住む小鳥達のさえずり・・・ハワイ国立公園手前にあるヴォルケーノ・ヴィレッジにあるヴォルケーノ・アート・センター、二アウラニ・キャンパスがこちら。
 Right behind the Niaulani Campus building, there is a trail where you can walk through and see many of Hawai'i's endemic plants up close. It's a great experience!

ビルの裏にはハワイ固有種の植物が生息している森の一部を観察できるお散歩コースがあります。自然と触れるいいチャンスですのでぜひ歩いて森林浴をしてくださいね!


 After your experience at Niaulani, then you should go to the Hawai'i Volcano National Park, see Halemaumau/Kilauea, and go to the Volcano Art Center Gallery. Check the schedule for Hula Kahiko Series so you may see a performance by a local hula halau. The stage is right near the Gallery.
 
森林浴ができたらお次はハワイ火山国立公園へ!キーラウエア火山があるところ、ハレマウマウ火口の噴煙が見えます。公園内入ったビジターズ・センターの奥にヴォルケーノ・アート・センター・ギャラリーがありますが、その直近くにフラ・カヒコ・シリーズのパフォーマンスが行われる舞台があるのでそこでぜひ地元ハーラウによるフラ・カヒコをごらんください。

This is the Education Coordinator, Marsha Hee, who is always willing to share her knowledge about Hawaiian culture. She is great!

こちら、文化教育関係のコーディネートをされているマーシャさん。とても詳しく丁寧に色々説明してくださいます!
 And don't miss this amazing exhibition by Marian Berger, called the Living Endemic Birds of Hawaii which is now showing until March 6 at the Gallery. This is a collection of her amazing watercolor paintings of native birds found only in Hawai'i. Definitely not to be missed! 
Well, have a happy weekend and Aloha!

3月上旬まで行われている、ハワイのみに生息している固有種、37種類の鳥 を描いたマリアン・バーガーさんによる個展が開かれています。精確に描かれた様々な美しく珍しい鳥、ハワイにはこれだけの素晴らしい野鳥がいた、ということが実感できる反面、ほとんどが既に絶滅しているという悲しい事実も無視できません。

それでは皆様良い週末を、アロ~ハ!
