  15. Jerry T. Okimoto

    Jerry T. Okimoto


    Jerry T. Okimoto (1924 – 1998) was a Japanese-American painter and sculptor who was born in Waianae, Hawaii. He is best known for his minimalist works consisting of several solid colored, geometrically shaped pieces of stretched canvas fitted together to form a single work. Since these works are essentially two-dimensional, they challenge the distinction between painting and sculpture. Double Image further challenges this distinction, in that it is totally abstract, but strongly suggests a vanishing point. In some of these works, the individual stretched canvases are moveable and are intended to be rearranged. He also created non-moveable minimalist sculptures (such as laminated white pine and plywood sculpture in the Hawaii State Art Museum). Along with Satoru Abe, Bumpei Akaji, Edmund Chung, Tetsuo Ochikubo, James Park, and Tadashi Sato, Okimoto was a member of the Metcalf Chateau, a group of seven Asian-American artists with ties to Honolulu.

  18. Winona Beamer

    Winona Beamer


    Winona Kapuailohiamanonokalani Desha Beamer (August 15, 1923 – April 10, 2008) was a champion of authentic and ancient Hawaiian culture, publishing many books, musical scores, as well as audio and video recordings on the subject. In her home state, she was known as Auntie Nona. She was an early proponent of the ancient form of the hula being perpetuated through teaching and public performances. Beamer was the granddaughter of Helen Desha Beamer. A cousin to Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame inductee Mahi Beamer, she teamed with him and her brother Keola to form a touring North American troupe performing ancient hula and the Hawaiian art of storytelling. She was a teacher at Kamehameha Schools for almost 40 years, but was expelled from that same school as a student in 1937 for dancing the standing hula. Beamer's sons Keola and Kapono are established performers in the Hawaiian music scene. She ran a Waikiki hula studio for three decades. In 1997—indignant at proposals to cut Hawaiian curriculum from Kamehameha Schools—Beamer became the catalyst for public protest and legal investigation into Bishop Estate management, which led to the removal or resignation of trustees.
