New Hawaii Mural
Looking for something off the beaten path to do in Honolulu this evening? Head over to the Honolulu Community College campus in Kalihi for the unveiling of the “largest aerosol paint mural on the Islands of Hawaii.” A great thing to do in Oahu, the event is being organized as a block party from 4 to 7 pm at HCC, located on 95 Kokea Street.The mural, which is the third of ten “Water Writes” murals, is part of a world-wide series organized by the internationally renowned street artist Estria. Estria Miyshiro was born and raised in Hawaii. The artist attended Iolani High School in Honolulu, but moved to San Francisco to attend college. Still living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Estria cofounded the Estria Foundation in 2010 with Jeremy LaTrasse to educate the public about environmental issues through art projects and community events. Featuring a 25-foot tall portrait of Queen Liliuokalani, the mural is dedicated to “the Hawaiian community and the vision of a sustainable future.” This free event will feature music by Palani Vaughan and DJ Kavet, as well as local food from a variety of food trucks, including Wahoo’s Tacos and Elena’s Filipino, making this a fun thing to do in Oahu.
