Thought some of you folks might be interested in this soon to be opened Long Beach's Pacific Island Ethnic Art Musuem focusing on Oceanic Art from Micronesia. Not sure of how much tiki influence this region had but they mention. "Their carved figures tend to be small, possibly because wood is scarce, and very spiritual, serving a protective function by maintaining positive relations between humans and the divine,"

Wow, what a surprise! That sounds good!

"The museum's 2,400-square-foot sculpture garden will contain six wooden figures ranging from 5 to 7 feet tall."

Just read in the Long Beach Grunion Gazette that the Pacific Island Museum is still looking for a curator. They are shooting for a early 2010 opening. They are currently working on a sculpture garden which will include a stone money bank and a dance platform for live art, such as traditional island dance and interactive cultural demonstrations.

Thank you for keeping us in the loop! I wrote them an e-mail a while ago introducing myself and asking if they would be interested in doing a Poly pop-to-contemporary Tiki art show, but had no response yet. I hope they will not have the dusty old academic stance of not recognizing and valuing pop manifestations of an indigenous art genre. The location of this place would be so perfect for such an exhibit.

Just received this email today.

Hello Alii Aloha Bula Ekamawir Omo Fakaalofa lahi atu Gude Hafa Adai Halo oloketa Kaselehlia Ia ora na Kia ora Lotu wo Malo e lelei Mauri Mogethin Ran-allim Talofa Taloha ni Yokwe



Welcome to the Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM). We are the only museum of its kind, in the world. We enjoyed meeting you at E Hula Mau yesterday. We look forward to introducing you to the art from Micronesia, Polynesia and Melanesia. The museum grand opening celebration is October 15-17, 2010.

We are located in the East Village Arts District in downtown Long Beach, California. We have a unique island unto an island location. PIEAM is situated on a triangular piece of land bordered by 7th Street, Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, and Alamitos Avenue. The mural design on the exterior of the PIEAM building recreates a traditional Men’s House from the Island of Yap, one of the four states of the Federated States of Micronesia. Also we have a sculpture garden which includes a Stone Money Bank (“Rai”) and a dance platform (“Mahlal”).

We will be featuring a community exhibit, “Walk In.” This is a multi-dimension exhibit where people are the art. It is seeing the traditional medicine healer as the artist, the mother in creation myths as the artist and the dancer as the artist.

With your support, as a future member, a corporate partner or as a donor, we will welcome you to the exotic, unexplored realm of the Pacific Island culture. As we progress to opening day, we look forward to a visit from you and as well as your continued interest.

With respect,

Fran
