Kalama Unveils Hui Murals

On Saturday, May 8th, nearly 100 teachers, students, friends and
faculty gathered at Kalama Intermediate to celebrate the unveiling of
2 large-scale murals, a project that has been 7 months in the making.

The unveiling was featured as part of Kalama's 25th Anniversary,
focused on the theme "We All Belong." Led by Hui teaching artist
Nathalie Nunez, Marilyn Morikawa's 7th grade class spent 4 months
planning, designing and creating the set of murals while
simultaneously learning about the value of student similarities and
differences, and how each contributes to the rich experience of Kalama

"Mahalo to the Hui for its continued support of our youth," remarks
Kalama Principal John Costales, "these murals are something we can all
be proud of for years to come."

Special thanks to Jim Sanders for offering this partnership the support it needed to come to fruition. (Learn more here).
