Description:  "Celebrating the Arts" presents three female dancers who welcome patrons and participants to the Performing Arts Center at Kauai Community College. Artist Kenneth Shutt intended to convey the spirit and grace of Hawaiian dance, but not to be so literal in presentation as to limit the viewer's imagination. "It is my hope," Shutt explains, "that these three figures will add another dimension to the experience of the Center's patrons as they celebrate the arts on Kauai." Many recognize the importance of wind, air and ocean water in determining Kauai's natural beauty and health.
