As the construction wall goes up for the recently announced Phase Two of Ward Village Shops, a group of talented local artists are preparing to bring a splash of color to the site. A one-of-a-kind, 300-foot-long mural will be created on the construction facade for the 57,000 square-foot retail center on Auahi Street, until the development is opened in the fall. Ward Centers’ focus on a “Kaka‘ako for All” will be reflected in the mural design and artistic process. Mural artists will use a layering technique to incorporate images of Kaka‘ako. Memories of Kaka‘ako’s past – pili grass, waves, salt and fish – will appear alongside images of a present and future Kaka‘ako. Ward Centers is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Howard Hughes Corporation (NYSE: HCC).
