I have initiated contact with a small museum of art in Hawaii, the Kauai
Art Museum. I am offering Web page services and will travel to this
outer island ( I reside in the main city of Honolulu of the island of
Oahu) and meet the staff soon. Maybe another R20001 fun event. For
example, only those members who want to bother - email me an image of
their imagination of a tropical "paradise" (not necessary Hawaii scenery
but would be appropriate). I'll print out or do a online exhibit
proposal for them but will merely verbally suggest it this time. For
this traditional small museum we would have to do something
naturalistic, not heavily technical, so it is not threatening or
overbearing for this convervative gallery space for traditional artists.
