A section of Wailuku Town got a facelift on Thursday with the installation of a new mural at the corner of Main and Market Street.

Thanks to the Hui No‘eau’s Maui Mural Project, artist, Eric Okdeh joined members of the Maui community in carrying out his artistic vision.

Wailuku town employees and business people were impressed by the work calling it “breathtaking.”

The mural features hula, kalo fields, and water running through the center of the image.
