Artists gearing up for KAUPA community wall mural marathon

Hawaii Independent Staff

KALIHI—A troupe of local artists, including Solomon Enos and Meleanna Meyer, are leading the charge to involve the island community in a mural marathon the week beginning Monday, July 25.

The efforts are part of one of the largest and most ambitious community mural projects in Hawaii. A first of its kind and the first of a series of large scale murals covering the length of lower Kalihi Stream, the project has been coordinated by KAUPA. The event caps off a yearlong
project that included art workshops, community meetings, and late night artistic brainstorming.

Spaces are still available for artists who are interested in painting the mural. Painting will occur July 25 to 30 from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

KAUPA is a nonprofit, community-based organization centered in Kalihi Valley.
