New Wailuku Mural Inspired by ʻŌlelo NoʻeauOctober 14, 2019, 4:26 PM HST · Updated October 14, 4:26 PM 0 Comments
A blessing will be held on Wednesday to welcome Wailuku townʻs newest mural.
The piece, led by Small Town * Big Art grantee Emmanuel Jarus, was inspired by this ʻōlelo noʻeau:
ʻIke Aku, ʻike mai (watch. observe)
Kōkua aku, kōkua mai (help others and accept help)
Pēlā ka nohona ʻohana (that is the family way)
Sissy Lake-Farm, director of Hale Hōʻikeʻike at The Bailey House Museum/Maui Historical Society, will share an oli and a few words about the 3-week process of working with the artist and Wailuku community to create the piece.
The ceremony will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the mural site at 2035 Main St. (on the backside of the building).
