    Art After Dark: 15 Seconds of Fame 


    This month’s ARTafterDARK will be focusing on the awesomeness of Andy Warhol and his famous claim that everyone has 15 minutes of fame.

    Well, the fine folks at the Honolulu Academy of Art have taken that to heart and will be taking that claim as their theme with “15 Seconds of Fame.”

    Aside from all the displays, Apple will be setting up a computer lab in the Kinau Courtyard, helping people create their own pop art masterpieces that they will email out afterwards.

    Music will be provided by Zachary Shimizu playing alternative covers and The Nocturnal Sound Krew playing one-hit wonders from throughoout the decades.

    As an homage to Warhol’s iconic Campbell Soup can painting, bring a Campbell Tomato Soup can or other canned food to ARTafterDARK and it will get donated to the Institute for Human Services.

    This all goes down this Friday night at the Honolulu Academy of Arts at 900 South Beretania St.  For more info, check out Honolulu Academy’s website.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii “Pineapple Aloha” Pack 

    After last Saturday’s epic BBQ/Sale, the Fitted crew has cleared off enough shelf space to keep the flow of new products coming.  The first of these new products pays homage to two iconic images: Andy Warhol’s classic Velvet Underground album cover and the Arakawa’s Palaka Print.

    First up, the hat.  This one was first seen about a month ago during Fitted Hawaii’s 24 hour coverage on the Strictly Fitted’s website.  Based off the famous Palaka print of plantation Hawaii, this hat is another collaboration between the Fitted crew and Estate LA.  The hat features a green Palaka print all over with a black denim brim and yellow underside.  Adorning the crown of the hat are the gigantic ALOHA on the front two panels, a left side Fitted crown hit, a right side WELCOME TO HONOLULU hit, and a Fitted crest back hit.  Overall, another winner cap with TONS of details.

    The shirt features the Fitted crew’s interpretation of the Velvet Underground cover, but with a Hawaii twist.  The iconic banana is replaced by the iconic pineapple.  The back features the Fitted crown with a fill consisting of the pineapple.

    These are both limited edition pieces, with the hat only having 100 and the shirt 80.  Suffice to say, if you want one, you better get there hella early.  Like all Fitted releases, this is subject to the usual rules: first come, first served; phone orders taken after 12pm.

    The “Pineapple Aloha” set will be available at 11am this Saturday at Fitted Hawaii.
