This program will highlight the unique and beloved approach of that the Zane Family brings to their creative work as cultural practitioners, designers of contemporary aloha attire.  It is an approach that truly rooted in Hawai‘i.

The inspiration for the exhibition title and concept, “ITO,” comes from the idea of “Interisland Living.” Of this, Sig says, “Hilo to Kaunakakai, between Lihu‘e to Hana, or going to Lana‘i and then to Honolulu, each unique locale offers its own stamp in your passport of memories.  Traversing between islands are a distinct part of Hawaiian life as in the past and especially today.”  Son, Kuha‘o adds, “ITO is our point of origin!  Home base, return to sender, the three-letter cluster that ends a mirage of airport codes on our return flight.  ITO is the code, representing our “Point A”- Hilo, Hawaii.”

This exhibition will feature installations by each member of the Zane ‘Ohana.  All three will be leading talks and discussions about both their individual and collaborative creative work.  A pop-up shop of Sig Zane Designs will run concurrently, and will debut a new, limited-edition line for the occasion.
