About the Collection

Fellow artists gave the works on view as unselfconscious acts over many years. MOF plans to open our exhibition space on a regular basis with the intention of giving back to the community what was freely given in the spirit of friendship. Nearly every painting, print, drawing, and sculpture in MOF represents a gesture that resonates meaning to the founders of this collection – the impetus for their goal of going public. With the establishment of MOF therein lies the opportunity for more organizations of this type to be established. Housed within the facility is an educational resource library that includes: art theory, practice, education, and k-12 student materials. The Pacific Rooms, which are part of the main exhibition area, are devoted to the display of objects related to Brendt Berger’s Hawaiian ancestry and those collected from the Pacific Rim.
