Hawaii is home to some of the world’s most well-known graffiti artists, so it’s only fitting that John “Prime” be involved in a mural project for the Palolo Discovery Center, located in the Kaimuki area of Honolulu, HI.
The mural project is sponsored by AmeriCorps Hawaii and painting is set to begin soon. The Palolo Discovery Center is responsible for raising test scores and grade point averages for students living in the surrounding area over the past year.
I had a chance to visit the center a few days ago and saw the exterior of the building where the mural will be and kids eager to learn about Hawaii’s eco system, specifically Hawaiian soil and how it works to turn fungi, molecules, rain and sunlight into bacteria that can grow plants.
Though the kids were rowdy, it was evident they wanted to learn and were excited to start their own garden in the rear of the Discovery Center.
I’m looking forward to see the finished mural!
