Art by Colleen Kimura Shares Stories at Pearlridge’s Wai Makai Gathering Place

Savvy Shopper

New art created by local textile designer Colleen Kimura shares the stories of the historical ahupuaa of Kalauao, where Pearlridge Center is located.

Kimura was one of the local artists who was selected to create artworks that connect the community’s rich past with a modern generation of shoppers at the newly renovated and renamed Wai Makai gathering place.

Her pieces showcase the surroundings of Pearlridge including the harbor, mountains, fishpond, and the sea, bringing local legends to life, with colorful creations.

Kimura called the opportunity “irresistible” but intimidating to do a project of this magnitude and meaning.
