Alumni artists create Kapālama Kai mural honoring the area’s history

March 3, 2021

Kamehameha Schools partnered with artists Cory Taum KSK’08 and Kahiau Beamer KSK’06 to honor the rich history of Kapālama with a mural inspired by the mo‘olelo of King Kamehameha’s efforts to restore lo‘i in the ahupua‘a after a period of war, to feed his people and begin the unification of the Hawaiian islands. Located at the corner of Kōhou and Kaumuali‘i streets, the mural serves as a catalyst for the implementation of the KS Commercial Real Estate Division’s Kapālama Kai Plan that updates the long-term vision and use of KS’ 105 acres of commercial land in the area. The flourishing ahupua‘a depicted in the mural symbolizes KS’ efforts to create an innovative and inclusive community that offers bountiful resources and opportunities for kama‘āina to live, work and thrive.
