Exhibition celebrates work of Obama's mother

Honolulu, Hawaii (CNN) - In her own right, Ann Dunham, the mother of U.S. President Barack Obama, lived an accomplished, international life that began in white-bread Kansas, weaved through Asia-light Hawaii and wound up in Indonesia.

Now an exhibition celebrating her life in the world's most populous Muslim nation is opening in Hawaii featuring her personal art and artifact collection.

    Ex-republican...learn to read and think...your name tells it all...you have to quit thinking left and right and do your own thinking...this woman had NO character and certainly no class...she was a nut case... a marxist and worse.

    I wish she was still alive and be proud of what she planted (her son); and guide him wherever he goes wrong. She was very intelligent woman with a lot of visions as for any parent looks for their children!
