(Los Angeles—May 2, 2016) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is pleased to announce the exhibition Royal Hawaiian Featherwork: Nā Hulu Ali‘i (May 22–August 7, 2016), comprising nearly 70 featherwork objects in addition to photographs from the museum’s permanent collection. Objects in the exhibition include brilliantly colored cloaks and capes that were crafted from the feathers of hundreds of thousands of indigenous birds and carefully attached to woven fiber supports. Developed by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in collaboration with the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Honolulu, this exhibition presents the finest examples of these objects.
