How the Aloha Shirt Conquered the World

Join us for a talk on the Aloha shirt woven with Hawaiian history by Martha Denney and Lloyd Walker.

Martha Denney is Director Emerita of International Education at Colorado State University. Since her retirement she has been able to indulge her love of textiles and travel.  Lloyd Walker retired from Civil Engineering at CSU after 30 years and became a dedicated student of history.  In 1986 they began traveling to Hawaii and in 2013 they purchased a home on the Big Island so they could spend more time learning about the Islands.  Martha curated an exhibit on Hawaii with Molly Eckman at the Global Village Museum that featured Hawaiian shirts as a way to tell the Hawaii’s story.  Lloyd explains the history that led to Hawaii’s role in transforming how people  all over the world dress. It is a fun and unexpected story. If registering on Wednesday, August 11, you can buy tickets before the event or call the museum but the online portal closes at 11:55pm on August 10th.

Music at the Museum: House Concert with Keahi Ewa

Music at the Museum: House Concert with Keahi Ewa

Keahi has been filled with the music and movement of her Hawaii culture since birth. She has been deeply influenced by her ohana (family). And her hula, songs, and stories bring the essence of her homeland. In Hawaiian, the name Keahi means the fire and guiding light.

Her performances bring song and dance from more traditional Hawaiian culture and contemporary musical genres—Island Music, R&B, Rock Balladry, Pop, and Country. Whatever she is singing, you hear her rich, heart-opening voice and the rhythm of the ukulele. You feel the heartbeat of the islands.

If you have the opportunity to attend one of her performances, you will leave knowing that you have been changed and refreshed by the spirit of Hawaii.

Tickets include 2 free drinks. Pre-registration required. No walk-ins. Doors open at 6:00pm on July 29th for exhibition viewing and seating.

To buy tickets on Thursday, July 29, please call the museum at 970-482-2787 or drop by as the online registration portal has closed.

Denver native, John Magnie has become a Fort Collins treasure.

After a stint in New Orleans where he met and came together with his most well-known band, The Subdudes, Magnie brought the rest of the band west and settled in Fort Collins during the years when housing was affordable and airport traffic was lighter. His soulful baritone voice is a familiar part of several of our most beloved music groups including Three Twins, Young Ancients, The Magnie Family Band, and most recently, The Del Shamen with his Subdudes bandmate Steve Amedee, Firefall’s Jock Bartley, Nick Forster from eTown and Hot Rize, and Eric Thorin, an in-demand local bass phenom. 

Magnie’s songs are known for their uplifting lyrics, catchy hooks, and incessant grooves. He moves from funk to blues to ballads to R & B with a facility nurtured by influences from Professor Longhair to Doctor John to Jackie Wilson. His audiences are brought together with a compelling urge to clap, stomp and sing along for an evening of music that will not be forgotten.
The evening will also include interviews with a handful of Masks artists.
