Florabunda is an exhibition that showcases bright designs of historically prominent fabric designers during the golden age of the Hawaiian shirt, exploring the artistic and cultural significance of this form of fabric design. In addition to the garments on display, this exhibition will also feature historic photographs and informative video to glean insight into the designers’ creative process, and production of the fabric and shirts themselves. The design and production of classic floral patterns and the composition of abundant Hawaiian foliage is at the heart of this exhibition. Composed of shirts from the 1950s through the 1980s, the collection highlights such designers as Alfred Shaheen, John Meigs, Elsie Das, and many more.
Admission to this exhibition during normal gallery hours is FREE and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. and Saturday, 1–5 p.m.
