Blessing and unveiling held for 100-foot mural on Church Street in Wailuku
A blessing was held this week for a 100-foot mural entitled “Mōhala I ka wai ka maka o ka pua,” translated as “Unfolded by the water are the faces of the flowers.” The blessing was led by Maui’s Uncle Bill Garcia.
The mural is located along the perimeter of the Hālau of ʻŌiwi Art construction zone, on Church Street where it intersects with Vineyard Street in Wailuku.
It ws designed in collaboration with community consultants Bob Hobdy and Tamara Sherrill of Maui Nui Botanical Gardens, Scott Fisher of Hawaiʻi Land Trust, Father Robert “Moki” Hino of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, Artist Phil Sabado and community survey respondents.
Details regarding the third and final 100-foot mural unveiling within this series are forthcoming. To stay up-to-date on the Wailuku Town Improvements Project, visit Wailuku Live.
