New Website, Grant Awards & Student Salon Exhibition
May 31, 2011In May, we proudly revealed a newly redesigned website and data management system, a project 2 years in the making that was realized due largely to the support of Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s Organizational Capacity Building and PONO grant awards. The project represents a staff-wide collaboration that is expected to boost overall organization & capacity considerably. (In the first 6 months of the site launch, we recorded a 44% increase in site traffic, complemented by sharp increases in online membership renewals, class registrations and ticket sales and a 10% increase in daily visitors). The biennial Student Salon Exhibition was another terrific May highlight, featuring 70 pieces by Hui students and teaching artists. Juried by the Hui's core faculty — teaching artists representing a wide range of artistic media — the pieces selected best represent the technical skills and overall spirit of the students' classes and workshops over the past two years. Some of these artists have never before exhibited in a public venue, while others have shown regularly for over thirty years — a fitting demonstration of the Hui's mission to support lifelong education in visual arts.
