Following the dream of legendary local artist Satoru Abe, the HiSAM Museum Gallery Shop was established as a gallery venue "For Hawaii Artists By Hawaii Artists" inside the prestigious Hawaii State Art Museum. Dynamic shop partners Mori by Art + Flea provide carefully curated gift items all made by local artists and designers. With Mori as "Hawaii's Gathering Place For Creatives", their exclusive assortment of local offerings provide the perfect compliment to the beautiful original artwork created by our amazing community of Hawaii artists.
The Hawaiʻi State Art Museum is located in the historic No. 1 Capitol District Building across the street from Iolani Palace in downtown Honolulu. The museum receives funding from the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, which allows it to remain free and open to the public. Built in 1928, this Spanish-Mission style structure comprises three galleries, an outdoor lanai, a cafe by MW, and a modern gallery shop known as HiSAM gallery shop x Mori.
