Contemporary MuseumThe Contemporary Museum occupies a unique place in the creative culture of Hawaii: It is the sole museum in the state dedicated to showing only contemporary art. In fact, the museum has two locations to present the provocative, dynamic forms of visual arts. The first is at the historic Cooke-Spalding house, and the other is downtown at First Hawaiian Center.

The museum opened to the public in October 1988. Since it opened, the Contemporary Museum has added a Museum Shop and Cafe.

The Contemporary Museum's growing collection dates from 1940 to the present. Artists represented include Robert Arneson, Jennifer Bartlett, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Kenneth Price, Andres Serrano, Kiki Smith, Mark Tobey, Richard Tuttle, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselman, and Peter Voulkos.
