SFO International Terminal main lobby exhibit case A1


Reflections of Paradise: Tiki Culture on the Mainland, is a brief examination of the history of Tiki culture in the United States.
Several periods of Pacific Island influence on mainland American pop-culture are documented through record albums, sheet music, restaurant menus, bar decor, and of course, Tiki mugs. From the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco that introduced many visitors to Hawaiian music and art, to the regular revival of tropical-themed bars and restaurants, this exhibition charts the ebbs and flows of a cultural influence that continues to offer fantasy and escapism to mainlanders everywhere. The show focuses on the Bay Area with an emphasis on Northern California King of Tiki Trader Vic including over thirty artifacts from the Trader Vic's Restaurant collection.

Meet at noon for a tour of the art followed by an open Q&A with curator Jeff Stevens and Otto von Stroheim who recently curated the Tiki Art Now exhibit at Roq la Rue Gallery, Seattle, opening September 15, 2006. www.roqlarue.com
