"Upper Cut," by Dennis Oppenheim, is a sculpture of steel, plywood, hard foam, sheetrock and art books.

Great escapes

Star-Bulletin Staff

These works of art are not used to being in the public eye. They are either new purchases on display for the first time or have been in storage for several years.

"Escaped from the Vault: The Contemporary Museum's Collection Breaks Out" offers a rare opportunity for art lovers to examine works by contemporary artists of international and national stature. Hawaii artists Toshiko Takaezu and Masami Teraoka are included.

"Snake Man," by Allison Saar, is woodcut and lithograph.

The works are gleaned from the museum's more than 1,800 works during the decades since 1940. Periodically the museum pulls selected works for the popular "Escaped from the Vault" exhibitions.

Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free on the third Thursday of each month, which conveniently is this Thursday. Admission otherwise is $5, or $3 to seniors and students, free to members and children.

The exhibit runs through March 24. Call 526-1322.
