Kudos to Franci Davila, Trysen Kaneshige, Seth Womble and the many, many hands (did you get yours involved?) on a great O Au Keia, A Healing Mental Health Art Show, that found life in the former Sports Authority space (Kukui Grove Center had the Vance Pascua mixed martial arts experience there last week). Carol Yotsuda was getting worried her Garden Island Arts Council board was going to leave her alone to disassemble the environment, and Trysen amassed a nice collection of artists for a nice street flavor, and Joanne Parongao had to get the Tsunami Taiko ensemble involved.
Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo to Father Arlan Intal, Lillian Vierra, Marina Pascua, Shelley Gerardo, and all the St. Raphael’s Church ‘ohana on a great Joy of Christmas experience (hurry, only two more weekends left to take it in!) at the oldest Catholic church on Kauai … it’s amazing how history can become so beautiful.
