THEATER & ARTS

This exhibition showcases beautiful wood pieces, from functional furniture to eye-catching artwork, carved from Hawai‘i-grown trees. But don’t expect to see any koa bowls, lauhala or mountain-apple products here—even salvaged deadfall is off limits for any indigenous or endemic Hawaiian woods. For more woody goodness, cross the street and check out Land Division: An Installation by Sean Connelly, a sculpture composed of invasive trees, at the Honolulu Museum of Art, running through Nov. 9. 

August 31–September 14, Honolulu Museum of Art School, freewoodshow.hawaiiforest.org
