Visit the Rose River Memorial

Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center
Monday – Saturday, 9 am – 4 pm, until Sept 4, 2021 • Free

Now open to the public, the Rose River Memorial is an art installation in collaboration with Artist Marcos Lutyens and the Rose River Memorial project honoring the lives lost to COVID-19 in the State of Hawai‘i. The outdoor installation will be on display through September 4th, 2021 at the Hui No‘eau’s Makawao campus. Members of the Maui community created more than 500 felt roses in remembrance of their loved ones. Maui’s healthcare workers, students, non-profit organizations, council members, government employees, and families have all contributed to the project. Ultimately the roses made for the Hui’s installation will make their way to Washington D.C. to be part of a larger exhibit in 2022.
