Mokupapapa Discovery Center

March 15th, 2014

Kahi’s latest mural installed at the Mokupapapa Discovery Center in Hilo depicts his interpretation of the first eight Wa in the Kumulipo, the Hawaiian Creation Chant.  Filled with marine life, it pays homage to the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, or as we know it, Papahanaumokuakea, a marine national monument dedicated to resource protection, science, education, and cultural preservation.  While Papahanaumokuakea has restricted access, the Mokupapapa Discovery Center acts as its gateway.  Free and open to the public, when you’re in Hilo, please visit, 76 Kamehameha Ave.

Aulani Resort & Spa

November 8th, 2011

Ahh, the (occasional) benefits that come with these artsy jobs… Kahi was invited along with other maoli painters to do some painting in their cast member cafeteria…in exchange for Room & Board for the Family!!!  How cool is that!  We totally enjoyed the stay which was for 3days and 2nights.  This place totally deserving to be the next best place for a Staycation!  Aulani, see you in 2012!  http://resorts.disney.go.com/aulani-hawaii-resort/
