Visiting Artists

Kaua'i artist Carol Bennett was commissioned by Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts and National Endowment for the Arts for this project.

The 8' x 48' photovoltaic glass canopy entitled Trigger Picasso Energy, is now permanently installed at the Hawaii State Art Museum Sculpture Garden.

The pattern is based on the Picasso trigger fish, also know as the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa Trigger which is the State fish of Hawaii.

It can be experienced in different ways:



The intent is to encourage thinking about alternative energy choices creatively.

Carol worked with Glasmalerei Peters Studios in Germany. Founded almost a hundred years ago, it is one of the most renowned workshops for glass design using traditional and modern techniques.

For Carol, this project was several years from initial concept through final installation. The opening ceremony took place on May 4th, 2012.

Join us as we take a look at the process and final installation.
