Look for art with a connection to the community at the newly renovated Pearlridge Wai Makai.
Pearlridge worked with local artists to bring the stories of the historical ahupuaa of Kalauao, where the shopping center is located, to life with 11 original works that feature the area including the harbor, mountains, fishponds and the sea.
The meaningful artworks can be found in various places throughout the shopping center such as etched in wood on columns, on tiles set in the floor and as paintings.
Local artist Harinani Orme shared the inspiration and significance of her pieces in staring stories that teach families to eat, shop, and gather there about the area’s vibrant history and rich roots.
Here’s a fun fact.
Each of her pieces has the Pearlridge logo creatively woven into the work.
See if you can spot it.
