Art Hawaii International | Oahu Events

Art enthusiasts from around the world are expected to attend Art Hawaii International – an inaugural Oahu Event.

Date of Event: November 2, 2017 to November 5, 2017

New York City is known for its wonderful modern art galleries and, for a few days in November, one of Big Apple’s finest galleries will bring an event to the Island of Oahu—and some in the art world think the Oahu Event will attract thousands art collectors.

About Art Hawaii International:
While Art Hawaii International will make its debut this year, it’s not a new concept. The event, being presented by New York City’s prestigious Westwood Gallery, is modeled after Art Basel, which takes place in Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Miami. Galleries from all over the world will take part in the event, and select local artists and galleries will be included as well.

This Oahu Event is a wonderful opportunity for collectors to see works from around the world in one place, and if the Miami event is any indication, hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of art will be sold. The Miami event, which lasted for 5 days, saw sales of a cool billion dollars.

With about 20,000 attendees expected to show up at the Hawaii Convention Center, and billions of dollars’ worth of art on display, this inaugural event could turn into one of the Island’s biggest. In addition to the displays from more than 85 galleries, attendees will also have the chance to enjoy art lectures, integrated art technology, a tribute to contemporary artists from Hawaii, and even special showings of films from the Hawaii International Film Festival.

Special artist’s installations, a VIP collector’s lounge, and onsite cafes will also be available. Whether you’re a serious collector or just getting started in the world of contemporary and modern art, this is an exciting Oahu Event that you won’t want to miss.

Can’t make it to this year’s Art Hawaii International? Don’t worry! The event organizers have committed to at least a 10-year run! Ambassador Hotel Waikiki Beach is ideally-located near the Hawaii Convention Center, making us an ideal choice for visitors coming to the island for this Oahu Event.
