Artists Noble Richardson (from right), Kirk Kurokawa, Amanda Bowers and Elmer Bio Jr. work on their large mural off Wailuku’s Main Street, near the intersection with Market Street on Friday afternoon. The colorful piece includes an ‘alala, or Hawaiian crow, and a hina’i, or Hawaiian fishing trap. The artwork is part of the weeklong “Sea Walls Maui –Mauka to Makai” project, which was scheduled to wrap up today. Hosted by the PangeaSeed Foundation and Small Town * Big Art, the goal of the mural project is to “catalyze positive change” for the oceans in the local community and among visitors and to reinforce the connection of upstream, noncoastal towns to the sea.
