Auction Hunting

On Empty Spaces / Chuck Watson, a well-known businessman and former president of Hawaiian Dredging and Construction Company was also occupied by “hammering through all hours of the night,” says Carol Moore. The owner of Moore Ideas, she is helping to get the word out about an epic Watson art auction taking place this Saturday. His iconic sculptures can be found all over the island, at Halekulani Hotel, Sea Life Park, the Honolulu Zoo, UH–Manoa’s School of Business and the Neal Blaisdell Center, and are “all indicative of an era,” says Moore. “The sculptures for sale this weekend are the originals,” she adds, “and that’s really something special.” As a prize-fighter, developer and country-club member, Watson’s story is rather unusual, but his sculptures are perhaps even more impressive.
