Aloha Americana

 

 Opens Saturday, August 11

in the Special Exhibitions Gallery 

Take a look at our 20th century fascination with Polynesian Pop Culture reimagined in a uniquely American way.  From early voyages to the South Pacific that produced adventure tales fueling the "Tiki bar" craze that swept America following World War II, to the modern revival of interest in MidCentry Tiki social culture. We'll also revisit Tiki Gardens, Indian Rocks Beach's lost roadside attraction.
