A blessing will be held on Wednesday to welcome Wailuku townʻs newest mural.

The piece, led by Small Town * Big Art grantee Emmanuel Jarus, was inspired by this ʻōlelo noʻeau:

ʻIke Aku, ʻike mai (watch. observe)

Kōkua aku, kōkua mai (help others and accept help)

Pēlā ka nohona ʻohana (that is the family way)
