October 14, 2019, 4:26 PM HST · Updated October 14, 4:26 PM

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).
