Due to the popularity of Schaefer International Gallery's exhibition, "Wes Bruce: Taken By Wonder," the public is invited to stop by from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today to take home and repurpose available items. This event is one day only; approved pieces are free.
The show, a structural installation that called viewers to participate by uncovering its wonder, was on display Sept. 8 through Nov. 2 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center; it is now in the process of de-installation.
Books, lumber and miscellaneous knick-knacks are still available. Take home a special piece that piques your curiosity.
Take a piece of “Wonder” home with you: Visit Schaefer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.
