We are thrilled to have completed our largest activation yet to #RevitalizeHilo. This activation featured 5 visiting artists - Jet Martinez, Yoskay Yamamoto, Rick Hayward, Emily Devers, and Sam Yong; two local artists - Kai'ili Kaulukukui and Brandy Serikaku; and our visiting filmmaker Cory Martin.  

This public art and sustainability project was made possible through support from Novo Painting (Cole and Lisa Palea), OluKai, K. Taniguchi, Ltd., Hana Hou Hilo, Agasa Furniture Store and Keaukaha One Youth Development.
