Open House on the Halau of ʻOiwi Art project to be held February 27th

An informational Open House on the Hawaiian cultural center in Wailuku, called “Hālau of ʻŌiwi Art,” will be held on Monday, February 27, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Maui Academy of Performing Art's Promenade Food Court located at 2050 Main Street in Wailuku.

Since July 2022, the Hālau of ʻŌiwi Art design team has been working with the County’s Department of Management and the Kumu Hula Steering Committee to refine the needs and expectations for the facility. The current design is focused on the support and best practices for Hula and ‘Ōiwi Art, to be a LEED certified facility, a community gathering space and a good neighbor in Wailuku Town.

During the February 27th Open House, the public will have an opportunity to share their comments on the facility’s latest renderings and floor plans in an interactive activity. Attendees will also enjoy music, food and have an opportunity to talk story with the Kumu Hula and County representatives working on this project.

Additional parking will be available at Wells Park on Wells Street in Wailuku with complimentary shuttle transportation to the event on the County’s Da Bee shuttle.
