This year’s Punahou Carnival Art Gallery – Hawai‘i’s largest art show – and the Punahou Carnival Silent Auction will be presented virtually. Art buyers and auction bidders will be able to arrange for drive-through, contactless pickup at the Punahou campus for their items.
The online art gallery will open Monday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m., and run through Saturday, Feb. 5 at 9 p.m. at punahoucarnival.com.
The gallery features more than 3,000 works of art created by nearly 300 Hawai‘i artists, including jewelry, paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture, ceramics and glass. Proceeds from each piece of art are shared evenly between the contributing artist and the Carnival’s fundraising efforts for financial aid.
The online Silent Auction will open Wednesday, Feb. 2, at 12 p.m. and run through Saturday, Feb. 5 at 9 p.m. at punahoucarnival.com.
The auction will feature over 150 items, including hotel stays, artwork, jewelry, Punahou mango chutney and lilikoi butter, a Kualoa Ranch ATV and zipline tour, and gift certificates from restaurants and Maui Divers Jewelry.
While there is no public, on-campus event as in previous years, the students and parent volunteers continue to honor the tradition of the Punahou Carnival as a learning experience for students while maintaining the health and safety of our community. Even though Carnival will be different this year, the Class of 2023 still hopes to raise the necessary financial aid funds to support the students of Punahou.
