Join us for our newest exhibition, Zoonami!
Hawaii is one of the most biologically diverse destinations on the planet while simultaneously the extinction capital of the world. Zoonami is a themed exhibit calling attention to the plight of wildlife here and around the world. Selected works will showcase aesthetic, scientific and/or emotional appreciation for our feathered, furry, scaly or even imaginary animal friends.
After careful deliberation of nearly 100 submissions by our guest juror and editor of the Culture Bomb, James Cave, we have selected the top thirty entries to be showcased here at The ARTS at Marks Garage. Through a partnership with the Honolulu Zoo Society, The ARTS at Marks Garage has also acquired works from Rusty and Violet the orangutans, paintings by elephants, and a 7-foot taxidermy reptile called a gharial.

Greek forces are demoralized and on the verge of open rebellion. The Trojans have grown so used to war that some of their warriors are thinking more of love and less of battle. One such Trojan is Troilus, who has fallen in love from afar with the beautiful, witty Cressida. The tongue tied young man employs Cressida's aunt, Pandara, to arrange an assignation between the two young lovers.
Meanwhile, among the Greeks, Ulysses has decided to confront their soldiers' unrest by humiliating the de facto leader of the dissension, Achilles. Achilles spends all day lounging around with his lover, Patroclus, and refuses to go to battle Ulysses plots to make the Greek soldiers esteem the oafish Ajax over the intractable Achilles in the hopes that it will motivate the later into taking up arms.
However, when Cressida is traded to the Greeks for a Trojan prisoner of war and when Patroclus meets with a violent end, things turn deadly for Trojan and Greek alike.
