WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS NOVEMBER

Aside from our lineup of Surfjack experiences, here’s our go-to guide of what’s happening on Oahu this November.

NOVEMBER 1 (THROUGH JANUARY)

Unreal Hawaii in Popular Imagination
J.M. Long Gallery, Bishop Museum, 1525 Bernice St., Honolulu
Through January, guests can get a glimpse of the never-before-seen-together items from one of the largest private collections of Hawaii-themed printed collectibles. This experiential installation sets up a dialectic between unreal depictions in commercial art and the contemporary reality of Hawaii that has resulted from the wide use of stereotypical and culturally misappropriated depictions. More info
