HONOLULU – Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger is pleased to introduce its new “Crafted Experiences” program starting with TOMA – Terrace of Modern Art – a summer series featuring celebrated artists who draw their inspiration from the beach.
This vibrant, surf-art exhibit kicked off on June 1, 2018 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger. The hotel pool deck adjacent to Hawaiian Aroma Caffe transformed into an outdoor art gallery – featuring the work of internationally renowned artist Eduardo Bolioli this month, with more to follow. Guests had the pleasure of meeting the artist in an upbeat atmosphere with a live DJ, handcrafted drinks, and delicious bites.
