Honolulu Urban Art District

When people think of Hawaii they tend to picture miles and miles of empty beaches and crystal clear water. While that is definitely a part of Hawaii, we also have another side. Honolulu is a large city with traffic, skyscrapers, and yes, urban art (or graffiti as some would like to call it). Recently, a local group known as 808 Urban formed to help the youth of low-income communities through artwork. Businesses donate money to the organization and, in turn, have a mural painted (or spray painted) on their wall by local artists. Many of these businesses are concentrated in downtown Honolulu, which has resulted in a beautiful collection of unique artwork that is starting to be known as the urban art district.
