Artist to open time capsule at Kapiʻolani CC

In November 2002, a time capsule containing children’s art work was buried near an outdoor sculpture titled, All One, on the Kapiʻolani Community College campus. The sculpture is one of five sun-aligned sculptures located around the world. The World Sculpture Project was created by artist Kate Pond who buried the accompanying time capsules between 1994 and 2007. Each capsule will be opened in 2015, close to specific sun alignment times.

The Kapiʻolani capsule will be uncovered on Thursday, November 19, 9 a.m. at the site of All One, located on the corner of Makapuʻu Avenue and Diamond Head Road. Pond will be on hand to talk about her art which allowed her to reach across cultures and time zones to mark time using light and shadows.
