Our History

In 1888, King Kalakaua issued a royal charter, commissioning a magazine. Then titled Paradise of the Pacific, this publication became HONOLULU Magazine, making it the oldest magazine west of the Mississippi.

“Honolulu’s growing population will be served well by an extensively expanded arts museum which opened its doors last month,” reports Paradise of the Pacific. The Honolulu Academy of Arts celebrated its 33rd year with the opening of an education wing, which houses an art school, an education department and a substantial lending collection, known today as the Art Center at Linekona. “On view, as re-opening night’s outstanding art treat, was the first showing anywhere in the world of the arts of South Arabia.” Today, the Academy—which merged with the Contemporary Museum last year—has the state’s largest collection of art featured in more than 10 current and permanent exhibitions.
