Native Hawaiian artists, alakaʻi and haumana, offer a Hawaiian perspective on the economy with the Hawaiʻi Kākou Mural, which will be on display during the 2011 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit this November at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center.

Artists Meleanna Meyer, Solomon Enos, Kahi Ching, Harinani Orme, and Al Lagunero, led over 20 students from various Hawaiʻi middle schools and high schools in painting the 64′ x 10′ mural.

The unveiling is scheduled for next Wednesday, October 19, 2011, at 5:30pm.
