In founding the Honolulu Academy of Arts in 1927, Anna Rice Cooke wanted to share her love of the arts with the children and people of Hawaii. From that vision the Academy has become “A Museum for Everyone,” both a destination for international visitors and a magnet for the people of Hawaii. The Honolulu Academy of Arts is a private, non-profit institution located in a historic building not far from downtown Honolulu or Waikiki. With its full schedule of studio art classes, gallery tours, school programs, family activities, as well as a film and performance series, the Academy is dynamic and ever-changing–fulfilling the dream of Anna Rice Cooke and distinguishing itself as Hawaii’s premier arts institution.
