Throughout the world, art is used as a tool to express emotions, perpetuate culture and convey meaningful messages. Hawai‘i is no exception. Art has long served an important role in sharing stories about the treasured history of our beloved islands. SALT at Our Kaka‘ako is proud to serve as an art hub, showcasing an impressive collection of original murals created by talented local and global artists. Through an ongoing partnership between Kamehameha Schools and POW! WOW! Hawai‘i, SALT has become canvas for these large-scale paintings that are popular among visitors and locals alike.
“Public art, like the murals at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako, helps bring about conversations and engagement about the place and its people,” said Jasper Wong, founder and lead director of POW! WOW! “We are grateful for our partnership with Kamehameha Schools and SALT at Our Kaka‘ako, where we can share creativity, beautify the community and bring people together.”
The murals located throughout SALT embody the vibrant culture of the Arts District of Our Kaka’ako and highlight the relevant history of the area, its people and legacy. Discover the arts at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako, on your next visit!
