Hokulea and Hikianalia Painting Day

What do you get when you have 14 hatch covers to decorate and 15 young artists? In a never-before done collaboration with the Pow Wow School of Art, 808 Urban and the Estria Foundation, about 15 students from local schools got the chance to paint and draw colorful artwork on the hatch covers of the Hokulea. Each art piece represents one of the Polynesian islands, and destinations on the upcoming journey: American Samoa, Easter Island, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Tahiti, Japan and others.
