HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—Honolulu is increasingly becoming a bike-friendly city and the museum’s monthly Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event focuses on the joys of two-wheeled travel on May 20.

Kids can ride bikes and make art about bikes! Members of the Honolulu Printmakers will help young ones make a book of maps and prints of bike designs. Aspiring artists can also make vibrant bike flags that look great and keep them safe on the road.

Hawaii Bicycling League members will be on hand to help guests plan a safe biking route on a giant map, while beginner bikers can take their first spins on balance bikes. A collection of bikes of every stripe will have kids guessing what they are made to do, and Honolulu City and County and Biki staff will offer biking tips.

Then people ready to get in the saddle can head across the street to Thomas Square Park to participate in the Hawaii Bicycling League’s bike rodeo.

The museum also has activities held in conjunction with its Cultural Animation Film Festival. Christopher Caravalho of Mana Comics do a live drawing demo, and kids can become the next Jack Dorsey at a Keiki Coding station set up by Twiddle Productions. Independently owned book publishing company Bess Press and da Shop will set up shop. 

Guests can also head down to the Doris Duke Theatre to test their native Hawaiian bird calls at the Kia Manu Interactive Exhibit, courtesy of the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. Outside the theatre will be Kottura Innovations, a Guam-based creative design firm that produces interactive, augmented reality children's books and t-shirts.

The museum invites visitors to enter the popular monthly drawing contest for young people age 17 and under. The museum gives contestants a theme and drawing supplies. The winner receives a Supporting-level membership to the Honolulu Museum of Art ($100 value), and his or her artwork is used to create the following month’s event brochure and is posted on the museum website. Last month’s winning drawing will be on the cover of the program for next month’s event.

About Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday
Since 2004, the third Sunday of every month at the Honolulu Museum of Art has been free to the public, thanks to Bank of Hawaii. Each event features a program of art activities, entertainment and demonstrations held throughout the museum. See more information about the event.

Families can ride the museum’s free shuttle up to Spalding House in Makiki Heights, where the museum has more free art fun. Kids can fashion mini houses out of wood shapes. Nancy Kulp tells stories about big trucks and the workers who use them to construct all the new buildings around us. Kids can learn about all the different kinds of homes, from traditional hale pili to modern apartments to houseboats in a storytelling session at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
