Wilma Nakamura, who witnessed the spectacular 1959 eruption of Kilauea Iki as a child, created 100 handmade postcards from her own photographs that are mounted on wooden ledges. The back of each postcard — complete with a copy of a 7-cent stamp and 1959 postmark — holds a message from the artist. Viewers are encouraged to interact with Nakamura’s “Gesture Tinged With Awe” by picking up the postcards and reading them.
