Throughout his residency at Hui No’eau, Mazatl transformed the Hui’s History Room (located within the walls of the 100-year-old historic Kaluanui home) by creating a large-scale mural inspired by his experience on Maui, and specifically his experiences at Auwahi Forest Restoration Project in Ulupalakua. The mural is open to the public daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with free admission. It will be on display at least through 2019.
