Hui Noeau Visual Arts Center presents Rose River Memorial, 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 Hawaii. The outdoor installation will be on display through September 4th, 2021 at the Hui Noeau’s Makawao campus. The memorial is part of the grassroots community art movement, Rose River Memorial, that honors and grieves the lives lost during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. The project engages communities to create felt roses as a symbol of grief for every life lost. Members of the Maui community have come together to make 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. The opening will be available to view virtually on the Hui Noeau Facebook page on Friday, May 21 at 4pm. https://www.huinoeau.com/exhibitions.
