Hulihe'e Palace, the beautiful Kona oceanfront summer home of Hawaiian royalty, was damaged in the earthquake last October. Hula will erupt on Aug. 25 at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which serves as the dramatic backdrop to the fifth annual Na Mea Hawai'i Hula Kahiko performance from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Traditional hula and chant will be performed outdoors on the hula platform overlooking Kilauea Crater, in conjunction with the Aloha Festivals' Royal Court Investiture Ceremony at noon at Halema'uma'u crater. Currently closed to visitors are Kilauea's East Rift, including Napau Trail and Campsite and Na'ulu Trail; the parking lot at Mauna Ulu, due to firefighting operations; the park's eastern boundary in the Puna district near Kalapana (the buried village); and the Pu'u O'o vent on Kilauea, which has continued to erupt since 1983. The newly remodeled Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has shed its classically austere look to showcase an impressive collection of contemporary Hawaiian fine art. Some of the $50 million spent on renovating the 18-year-old luxury resort has helped support a new generation of artists who create the visual version of Pacific fusion cuisine, such as Marie McDonald's contemporary kappa (cloth beaten from mulberry bark) and Michael Harada's unfinished Kabuki masks. The collection of more than 280 original pieces includes paintings, sculptures, photography, paper works, ceramics, textiles, artifacts, wood vessels and feather lei, spread over 380 guest rooms and public areas.
