Aloha! And welcome to the 2014 edition of
Centerpiece, where we honor our donors, members and sponsors
and try to bring you up to date with some of the important news
of this center.
The MACC has indeed become a focal point for community
activities – in, by, of and around the arts. The MACC invites
everyone to participate in personal and shared experiences of
the arts, and we try to be as inclusive as possible with many and
diverse offerings. These range from our own presentations of
entertainment and fine arts, to presentations by the community:
MAPA, Maui Pops Orchestra, individual schools and community
groups, concert promoters and festival organizers, meeting
planners . . . you name it, we host it!
You will know us best, however, through the events and programs that we present to you, our Maui constituency. In our
season of presentations (a season, which is growing into a yearround, by the way) we try to bring the best of the world to Maui:
performers and artists from far and wide – or as near as other
islands!) We also present as many free community events as we
can: the annual Slack Key Guitar and ‘Ukulele Festivals, Starry
Night Cinema family movie nights, trendy ArT=Mixx interactive
evenings, and always-free admission to exhibits. Evidently the
community embraces these efforts, as over 30,000 people have
attended free events at The MACC in the past few months
alone! E komo mai!
“The MACC Presents” encompasses a large portion of our
events here. However, in addition to being a world-class destination for artists from around the world, The MACC is also a
world-class facility where the community of Maui can display our collective talents to the world. Never has this been so clear
as with the successes of the past year: visits by luminaries and
legends such as Carlos Santana, James Taylor and Tony Bennett;
benefit concerts such as that performed by Crosby & Nash
for Ruth’s Ride; and MAPA’s triumphant production of Les
Miserables. We are not just the ones presenting the artists;
sometimes we are also the ones making the opportunity for the
artists to shine their brightest. This all happens only with your help, your attendance, and
your donations. We thank you all for your support.

A legacy of
Maui plays in the fort
Wes Bruce built
It’s impossible to tell what’s art and
what’s not once you’ve been Taken by
Wonder. Twenty-eight-year-old artist
Wes Bruce chose that title for his oneman show in the MACC’s Schaefer International Gallery. It closed November
2 after an attendance-record-setting,
two-month run. Bruce, the MACC’s first
artist in residence, turned the creative
process inside out by building a fort in
the gallery where people of any age
could feel safe enough to get in touch
with their inner kid again.
he fort was a magical maze of
rooms, hallways and a staircase leading upstairs to more of the same.
Front doors appropriated from the old
P¯ai‘a General Store greeted visitors.
Lights twinkled in its windows.
It was both inviting and a tiny bit
spooky, its interior walls and shelves
covered with books, old National Geographics, antlers and animal skulls,
maps, bottles, glass fishing floats, farm
implements, sepia-tinged family photos
and so much more. One room upstairs
had a telescope for viewing the heavens. In another, a rocking chair hung
suspended from the ceiling by colored
threads, a resting place for imagined
ancestors. A nook with a cozy bed and
abundant reading materials suggested
that the MACC should have hung a
pink neon VACANCY sign outside.
The fort was equal measures playhouse, clubhouse and haunted house.
Touches of a fairy tale cottage and
evidence of its former inhabitants—
themselves products of the artist’s
imagination—added to its allure and
mystery. Its components were part
Smithsonian, part garage sale, part
“It referenced freedom, it referenced
playfulness,” said Bruce of his creation.
This isn’t his first fort in a gallery
space. His architectural installations
are “sort of a rebellion against the art
that I had been making previously,” he
said. The exhibit also included some
new mixed-media works—whimsical
renderings of owls, cats and other
critters. They sold out to collectors
almost as soon as the show opened.
His style is childlike yet visionary,
alive to the natural environment with a
deep, tribal reverence. In person, he is
wiry, agile and usually smiling. His
moves are quick, gracefully efficient.
He is boyish, curious, enthusiastic . . .
and one of those intuitive genius
types, an Amadeus kind of guy.
The California native is also someone at odds with the notions of “taste”
and inflated prices defining so much
of today’s art world. “I had been making lots of paintings previous to doing
these installations, and I wasn’t having
fun doing it,” he recalled. “I didn’t feel
like I was making connections with
people through them.”
That changed when he took a job
directing a summer camp, and did a
fort-building exercise with his staff.
“They really connected with it, so when
I got back I started doing them in a
proper ‘art’ context.”
He had found a way to pull the rug
out from under artistic pretensions.
Gallery director Neida Bangerter became acquainted with Wes Bruce’s art
when she was visiting her son, Bryan,
now a musician and filmmaker in San
Diego. He took her to see his friend
Wes’ fort in a museum there. Neida
instantly knew Maui needed Wes
Bruce’s art, too – and so began two
years of planning to create his residency
at the MACC.
Before coming to Hawaii, Bruce
said he had the stereotyped image
of “this paradise where everything’s
green and lush.” He began researching. “Sandalwood . . . whaling . . .
sugar . . . pineapple . . . tourism . . .
cattle. You can read all of that, but you
don’t realize just how overlapped all
that is,” he said.
Once he arrived, the equation
“I loved to see all the stuff the
Hawaiian tourism board didn’t want
me to see. The Maui Central Base
yard, old Matson containers in the
“dingier parts of Lahaina, and some
dilapidated parts of Wailuku” became
treasure troves. He also distilled a
unique understanding of the island’s
multi-ethnicity—“all this culture saturated into one spot.”
An early visit to Makawao provided
the perfect metaphor: “Here’s cowboy
culture, paired with native culture, and
then there’s Filipino culture, Spanish
culture . . . all twisted into these
paniolos.” The Buddhist hongwanji
is a few blocks away from the
Catholic church. “It’s like Spanish
cowboys meets Native Hawaiians
meets the Buddhist mission, all in
the same square footage.”
He spent a month collecting and
another month building the fort from
palettes and scrap wood, including
some from the old Waianapanapa
cabins in Hana. Donated Japanese
family photos were among the
pictures on the walls.
Within those rough-textured walls
lay a unique realization of what Maui
“means.” And underpinning that vision was the solid strength of craftsmanship. The fort was a sturdy,
perfectly plumbed structure whose
hallways and staircases safely guided
the footsteps of 10,000 visitors to
the gallery over the two-month run.
Guided education tours were given
to 894 students, pre-K to college
level students.
With his wife Emi, an ally in the
creative process, Wes conceived the
backstory of the ancestors, complete
with their own language, leaving
traces of wisdom in inscriptions on
the walls and windows. The fort was
equal parts art and function. It was
about repurposing castoff materials
into an environment for new imaginings. It was all about storytelling.
The fort was equal measures playhouse,
clubhouse and haunted house.
Touches of a fairy tale cottage . .
Its components were part Smithsonian,
part garage sale, part landfill.
It utterly destroyed the intimidation factor of “Art.” You had to enter
it to view it. Once inside, you were
part of it, adding your experience to
the story. It was accessible to everyone. A September 13 “Builders and
Dreamers” event brought a handpicked group of island artists and
other creative souls together to create
whimsical scenarios, like children at
play. On October 4, a well-dressed
crowd turned out for Art=Mixx Wonder, making the fort the hippest spot
on the island that evening.
Happy voices of children provided

a constant soundtrack. They have yet to
learn there’s supposed to be a difference
between “art” and fun. Nearby work tables
and raw materials in the gallery prompted
new creations.
Some of the most astute art reviews
came from UHMaui College students, taking the
short walk from
the campus across
the street to fulfill
class writing
“As I walked
upstairs, I immediately felt at home,”
wrote Kamalei Barrows. “It brought back
an awesome memory of being at my
grandmother’s house in the mac nuts . . .
I almost wanted to walk around barefoot.”
Kellie Furtado was drawn to the owl
paintings. “I feel like somehow the house
and owls were connected. Owls are very
timid and mysterious and that’s exactly
how I felt in the house.”
“At first glance, the rawness of the
structure seemed to offend every part of
my senses,” wrote Jalyn Olinda. “A closer
look, however, revealed a more complex
beauty that entreats the eyes to wonder
how such grotesque, imperfect pieces
complemented each other perfectly.”
The students tried to imagine the former residents of the dwelling.
“I questioned the psychological
explanation for why Wes would make up
“inhabitants” that previously lived in this
house,” wrote Shayla Leone/Collins. “My
thought is that art is all about expressing.
Sometimes it’s easier to express feelings
if they are a “friend’s feelings” and not
your own, even if they really are. Although
this fort was a little spine-chilling, I imagine with all the ‘inhabitants’ living in the
home it was a really warm, spiritual
and peaceful sanctuary.”
“I love this place!” wrote Taylor
Phillips. “It could be understood as
home to everyone. Every artifact that
existed within and around the house
had its own story. All the stories of
each artifact came together to compose one story, the exhibit.”
And, summed up Devin Galloway,
“Growing up as a child, our imaginations created worlds apart from our
own, where we could do almost anything. We built forts, castles, towers,
islands, anything to get away from
now. Our imagination built all the
things we couldn’t and took the place
of all the objects we didn’t have. Wes
Bruce took that imagination we all had
as kids and created the fort we all
dreamt of having. . . . There was a
room filled with pictures, and these
pictures were of my aunts and uncles,
my cousins, my grandparents, my
family. But all of these objects and
pictures didn’t just belong to me, they
belonged to every person who stepped
into this fort.”
For Wes Bruce, “It’s this form where
there are all these personal stories,
then I have to work from my own
angle. I have this mantra—what’s
most personal is most universal. It
waters it down if I’m trying to cater to
everyone. But if I listen well and if I
gather stories, and I’m honest and I’m
vulnerable, and I’m connected with the
people and the landscape and the past
culture, I let it resonate. I have to hit
that personal resonating bell so it just
fills that space with a kind of sweet
sound. And then other people come in
and they can harmonize with it.”
Art-Rageous Students
uring the summer, Wes Bruce conducted art
classes at MACC, including a new program for
promising young Maui artists grades 9-12, called
ART-RAGEOUS. Development of their ongoing
ideas will become the foundation for the Young
Creatives Student Exhibit, May 4 – 25. (Participants
will also be from Maui County schools K-12)
Part of the overall mission of the summer art
programs, and the ART-RAGEOUS project specifically, is to help students learn the process of being a
professional artist. The ART-RAGEOUS students are
creating pieces that involve deeper conceptual explorations of the work they started in the summer.
These projects are monitored according to several
key criteria, such as composition, development of
concept, and care in craftsmanship. Guided critique
and review sessions help stimulate their growth as
an artist: to encourage conversation and visual
awareness, discuss process and goals, and learn
about exhibit design and presentation. Through
this in-depth participatory process, students will
learn that the adventure of being an artist includes
interacting with fellow artists.

Science, Performing Arts, and Hawaiian Culture
Come Together in the 8th Grade Classroom
Official Ground Transporation Provider
by Susana Browne
In all my years of teaching science, the absolute best are here on
Maui. Not because of the closeness to the ocean, or the natural
beauty, but because I finally learned how to integrate art into the
curriculum. The arts education classes offered through Maui Arts &
Cultural Center have changed the way I teach and assess science.
—8th grade Kalama Intermediate School science teacher Margaret Prevenas.
ince 2004, Margaret Prevenas has
taken over 200 hours of MACC professional development workshops
and summer institutes on how to teach
through visual arts, dance, drama, and
music. In addition, for the past four
years, Prevenas has been collaborating
with teaching artists in eight or ten week
residencies, bringing the arts, along with
Hawaiian cultural connections, directly
to her students.
Ho‘okele Wa‘a, an interdisciplinary
unit, uses science and performing arts to
teach students basic understanding of
the major source of energy on Earth,
how energy is transferred, and energy
movement through waves. Ho‘okele
means navigate in Hawaiian and is used
as a metaphor for students learning how
to successfully navigate through life. By
learning and performing an oli (chant),
accompanied by meaningful move-
ments, students develop an understanding of the connection between
successfully moving through their own
lives and navigating energy in the
ocean and the world.
Prevenas developed this innovative
way of teaching out of a need to reach
what she calls her “quirky, unreachable, rascal target population known
as Hawaiian Pacific Islander middle
school boys.” In a 2011 research paper,
Prevenas wrote:
“In order to help my indigenous
students learn, I had to learn about
their culture, show how the culture
supports the understanding of
science content and has all along.
I needed to be able to understand
that a native way of knowing is truly
native intelligence. I needed to
learn about Hawaiian culture and
have open communication with an
individual or a reliable resource
that could assist me in addressing
the traditional Hawaiian ways of
knowing. And if I did, I believed my
students could learn science and
learn it well.”
With support from Maui Arts &
Cultural Center, Prevenas found reliable
resources in the form of Hawaiian
teaching artists/performers Makamae
Murray and Kalapana Kollars who
collaborated with her on teaching
interdisciplinary science/arts units to
eighth graders from 2009-2013. In
September 2011, Kollars and Prevenas

In September 2013, Prevenas was
back in her science classroom at
Kalama after a year as a STEM (science,
technology, engineering, and math)
resource teacher for Maui District.
She communicated with The MACC
education director and wondered if
there might be funding for her to
bring another group of students
through the navigation unit. In
addition to the science learning,
Prevenas wrote about the power of
the cultural connection in building
community in her classroom.
“Working together, laulima, is a
Hawaiian cultural value and of
great importance in establishing
a learning community where all
individuals are valued for their
strengths. Focusing on strengths,
rather than deficiencies, allowed
everyone to bring a gift to the
classroom and helped students
learn collaboration skills and
respect for one another. Creating
a strong, respectful learning
community was an unexpected
bonus from this project.”
Thanks to funding from the
County of Maui, Makamae Murray
was able to once again collaborate
with Prevenas and bring another
group of 150 eighth graders to the
understanding of the power of mana
and ho‘okele. Students were asked,
“What is the message of your dance?”
Responses included: “Put pride in
what you do!” . . . “You can navigate
your way through life” . . . “Working
together is the best way to get
through life.” . . . “You are the leader
of your life.”
Prevenas’ final words:
“I am able to help my students
authentically learn and discover
the depth of their knowledge
through arts integration. If you
don’t integrate art, you are doing
students a great disservice.”

to a more sustainable environment
by significantly reducing our
carbon footprint.”
—Art Vento, MACC President & CEO

photovoltaic panels (below)
he MACC’s 1.3-acre solar
energy farm was planted in
2011 on a small rise of unused land overlooking the
center above the main parking lot. Now this gleaming field –
a shiny array of 1,974 photovoltaic
panels – produces one-third of
the facility’s electrical power
needs, and saves the center over
$100,000 per year in operating
costs. It also results in a more
Maui-shaped footprint on the path
to restore Planet Earth. As anyone
who has come home a little toasty
after a fun, day-long concert in
the amphitheater knows: Sun.
We have it. Let’s use it.
The installation was completed at no cost to The MACC
by project partner SolarCity, and
constructed by Honolulu Builders.
The plan is that SolarCity will recoup its infrastructure investment
by selling energy to The MACC for
less than the rates charged by the
local utility.The MACC system
also serves as a demonstration
site for SolarCity; delegations
from Korea, Japan and Tahiti have
visited the site to view this as
a working prototype for other
potential installations in Hawai‘i
and the Pacific Rim.
The energy use at The MACC
is intensive because the Center's
activity is intensive: over
250,000 people per year come
through the gates, attending
1,700 separate events every year:

act, The MACC uses a daily average of over 6,000 kilowatt hours
(kWh); the Solar-City array provides approximately 2,000 kWh.
“As a nonprofit, it is essential
to find ways to reduce overhead
in order to deliver the maximum
products and services to the
community,” President and CEO
Art Vento said at the dedication
of the solar farm in December
2011. “This installation will

silences between notes. Eight-hundred
eyes caught in the blinding light of his
playing, like deer in headlights. Which
isn’t to say the blinding speed wasn’t
there when needed. Songs like
“‘Ukulele Five-0,” “Less Cowbell, More
Ukulele” and “Orange World” disappeared into blurs of his right hand. His
energy more than filled the stage. At
one point he left it altogether to play as
he moved through the tables, up close
and personal, as a Moonlight Series
show is meant to be.
His stage presence was a cross
between zen master and an amiable
kid brother, his unassuming, selfeffacing patter between songs added
humor, as when he talked about bowing incessantly when meeting the
queen of England; or poignancy, when
he described a ride in the car with his
dad when he was still a boy.
That experience produced his composition “$5 Unleaded,” which rivaled
great pastoral folk guitarists with the
vivid landscapes it painted in sound.
Elsewhere in the show, he described
playing “In My Life” as a duet with
Bette Midler . . . before his fingers once
again took the place of lyrics to convey
the song’s rich emotions.
A "Moonlight" show in the pavilion
seems at its best with mellow solo
artists, their accessibility to the audience enhanced by the silkiness of
Maui by night. But then again: add seasoned artists like Melveen Leed with a
jazz band, or Mana‘o Company (as
were featured in the latest N¯a H¯ok¯u
Hou concert) and the space transforms
itself into the ultimate night club,
and the energy rises to the stars.
Get Maui moonlight into the act
and anything is possible.
The gleaming pavilion space, in a variety
of seat configurations, will be the scene
of more moonlit concerts to come.

outoor venue feel more like a jazz club . . .
only with palm trees and gentle trade
winds for accompaniment.
The still-new pavilion venue has bars
and food counters, adding to the cache
of a nightclub. But when Jake played
there were no blender noises, no tinkling
glasses to break the spell as he held the
audience of 400 transfixed as he gracefully moved through a song list ranging
from the Beatles’ “In My Life” to
Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” through
the Japanese koto piece “Sakura” before
concluding with Franz Schubert’s “Ave
Maria” played unplugged to showcase
the acoustics.

Morimoto’s pre-opening
benefit party for The MACC
orld-renowned “Iron Chef ” Chef
Masaharu Morimoto invited the
members of Maui Arts & Cultural
Center to participate in a special preopening event for his newest world-class
restaurant at the luxurious new hotel
Andaz Maui at Wailea on Sunday,
November 3. Over 100 MACC members
responded to the invitation, and the event
quickly sold out. Chef Morimoto prepared
some of the evening’s selections himself,
as well as supervised the kitchen for this
special Maui menu preview. A gorgeous
sunset over the beach crowned this
beautifully-designed property, as waves
of wait staff swirled around the guests,
bearing tantalizing trays of Chef’s
artistry—each item meticulously designed
and executed for maximum deliciousness.
Mahalo to Morimoto for helping to
raise some tasty funds for The MACC!

Alexander & Baldwin Supports
MACC’s “Can-Do!” Days
aui Arts & Cultural Center received a $10,000 check
from Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. to support the
CanDo! Days programs for Maui students grades 1-5 in
the coming year. Grant Chun, vice president of A&B
Properties, Inc., delivered the check to MACC Education Director Susana Browne on August 15, at the annual meeting of Arts Education Lead Teachers from
schools around Maui County. During this meeting,
teaching artist Margie Heart conducted a drumming
circle to demonstrate the collaborative and team-building potential in making music. Chun, along with Joy
Yokouchi and Janelle Rodrigues (representing A&B subsidiary Kahului Trucking & Storage Co.), took part in
the exercise and experienced effective learning techniques strategies.
Arts education programs at The MACC encompass
the performing and visual arts, which help engage students’ attention and have been proven to result in
more effective learning.
Last school year alone, more than 6,500 Maui
school children took part in CanDo! Days at The
MACC: art immersion field trips that include hands-on
workshops in the visual arts, drama and dance. In addition, up to 10,000 students annually will attend special
school shows at the center.
Chun said, “Our local Maui students have many
gifts which can only be realized if they are provided
with a setting where their interests and talents are encouraged and celebrated. The MACC has provided that
setting for thousands of our Maui youngsters each year
and we couldn’t be more pleased to be a part of it.”
“The unwavering support of Alexander & Baldwin
has been vital to the development of our arts education
programs,” said Art Vento, MACC President and CEO.
Janelle Rodrigues, Joy Yokouchi, Grant Chun (representing Alexander &
Baldwin) and MACC’s Art Vento practice their rhythmic harmonies
during a learning exercise for arts education teachers in August. A&B Inc
donated $10,000 to support The MACC’s “CanDo! Days,” which extend
the learning potential of more than 6,500 Maui County students annually

he Leis’ have a lengthy list of beneficiaries, both large and small,
and an impressive history of philanthropy. Though it is estimated
they have given away several million
dollars over the years, primarily in
Maui County, they remain rather
quiet and steadfast about their donations, and humble about their accomplishments.
Dorvin and Betty Leis were recognized as Hawai‘i’s Outstanding Philanthropists in 2003, awarded by the
Association of Fund-Raising Professionals. Dorvin D. Leis Company
was also given the 2008 Business
Leadership Hawaii Community Spirit
Award by Pacific Business News.
Their gifts to the community include more than $1 million to
MACC, $1 million to UH-Maui College, and $300,000 to the Maui Memorial Medical Center Foundation.
Aside from these major gifts, over 25
non-profit organizations have benefitted from the Leis generosity, including: March of Dimes, Boy
Scouts, Girl Scouts, Hospice Maui,
Maui Cancer Society, Catholic Charities, Child & Family Services, Kihei
Little League, Maui Historical Society, and The Nature Conservancy.
Jimmy Haynes, chairman of The
MACC board of directors, has said:
