The Lo‘i Gallery

The land upon which the ASB Campus sits – and its surrounding areas – was once filled with lush loʻi kalo (taro patches), nourished by the Nuʻuanu Stream, which flows alongside. Just as the loʻi nurtures the kalo within, ASB’s Loʻi Gallery provides a space for artists of Hawaiʻi to share their talents with the community.

Twenty percent of sales from this gallery will benefit one of ASB’s nonprofit Kahiau partners, which include Child & Family Service, Kapi’olani Health Foundation, Kupu, Partners in Development Foundation and United Way.
