Art on the Zoo Fence Sun, 9:00 AM

July 23, 2017

Art on the Zoo Fence

Location: Zoo Fence

A marvelous way to begin your Saturday or Sunday is with a stroll down Kalakaua Avenue toward Diamond Head. Many restaurants along the way are open for breakfast; we favor Tucker & Bevvy on Kapahulu Ave., right across from the Honolulu Zoo.

To the right of the zoo, hanging on the fence that separates the lions and tigers from the truly dangerous animals, is an array of original art — the most recent examples of a Waikiki tradition spanning more than 50 years. Best of all, the artists are there, too!

From whimsical to mysterious to bold and cheerful, the artwork is a rainbow of individuals’ expressions of their home, Hawaii. All of the pieces are for sale at reasonable prices, and the artists are happy to discuss their work.

By the way, if you’re a late sleeper, not to worry: The exhibit is open until 3 pm.
