Celebrating the Arts
Friday, February 22nd, is the date for the annual Celebrating the Arts event in Waimea Valley! Begun in 2010, as a way to bring the arts back to the classroom, this event showcases over 150 local artists in addition to artwork of students of Sunset Beach Elementary School. The featured artist this year is Hilton Alves. Raised in Guaruja, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but now residing on the North Shore, Hilton Alves began painting professionally in 2000. His artwork reflects his passion for the ocean. Whether it is surf and waves, ocean life, or the ocean sports which he enjoys, his artwork is unique and beautiful! Having done many murals in his native Brazil, you may also have seen some of those murals here on Oahu. There will be a live and a silent auction of his art, as well as artwork of other artists, which will benefit the Sunset Beach Elementary Arts Program…so come, enjoy the art, the live music, the great food ambiance, and be a contributor to a good cause while you’re at it!
