Makawao, Maui


In the Spring of ’06 Abigail Romanchak and Paul Mullowney worked with a group of high school students from Maui to create a 4 x 5 foot wood block print. These students were asked to first think about the change that is presently happening to the island of Maui and then create imagery that communicates this. The final print was an image of Maui divided into twelve traditional “moku” (larger land divisions) and an image of the Hawaiian flag with the text (written by one of the students): Hawai’i’s ‘ohana breaks because of it’s beauty.
