Developed through a 2018 Our Town grant by the National Endowment for the Arts, SMALL TOWN * BIG ART is a creative placemaking collaboration of the County of Maui + Hale Hōʻikeʻike at the Bailey House / Maui Historical Society + Maui Public Art Corps working to develop an arts district that celebrates the distinctive sense of place, history and culture of Wailuku, Hawai‘i.
Professional artists are paired with community consultants to co-create visual, performance and experiential art installations that align with ‘ōlelo from Mary Kawena Pukui’s ‘Ōlelo No‘eau: Hawaiian Proverbs and Political Sayings.
Through many hands and many voices, these creative interpretations represent a revitalized identity for this small town with the BIGGEST heart. LEARN MORE.
