Join “SensiNg wetnesS” for exhibit opening 26 May on Hawai‘i Island

Water Connections

What happens when we listen to the water held in the land? What does it say and what would it teach us?


Join us along with artist-in-residence James Jack, as we invite the community to engage with water in the land and listen to the stories and wisdom which water shares with us today.

On Tuesdays and Thursday for the month of March, we’ll be sharing 9 unique prompts encouraging experiential connections and creative documentation. We invite you to post or share your stories on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags:

or via email to:

This open ended exploration of water will continue with an exhibit at the Donkey Mill from May 19 to July 3. Your participation is critical to making this unique art come to life!
