The Hui No'eau Maui Mural Project

November 1, 2012 This July, Philadelphia-based mural artist Shira Walinksy joined forces with our Maui community to create the public art installation "What Makes Maui MAUI," a gigantic, double-sided vivid representation of a dialogue developed throughout the year leading to her Hui residency. (See it here). Last month, muralist Eric Okdeh joined us from Philadelphia to continue the dialogue for a 3-week residency that included teen, adult and professional workshops, free paint days and more- resulting in a large-scale public mural installation in historic Wailuku town.
