I was glad to read about a Punahou74 classmate in this morning’s edition of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
Just in time for this week’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) gathering at the Hawaii Convention Center comes this news of a new mural that will be on display there near the building’s escalators. It’s there courtesy of the creative energies of Punahou 74’s Mele Meyer, four other Native Hawaiian artists, and the dozens of students that they mentored to produce the work.
In a theme that will be relevant to conference attendees, the mural is a visual expression of an aloha-based economy. It is hoped that it will become a catalyst for larger discussion between those who view it.
The 64′ x 10′ work came together in less than a week. Mele termed the collaboration “amazing” and a demonstration that collective work is possible.
