Get to know internationally-acclaimed light art phenom Andy Behrle, who led Wailuku's SMALL TOWN * BIG ART program's very first community collaboration in the Fall of 2019. Following four months of project development, Andy worked with dozens of community members to research, reimagine and refine a light installation depicting a stained glass window from St. Anthony’s Church before it was lost to a devastating fire in 1977. Through hours of footage collected at different points of the Wailuku River, panes of glass were replaced with visions of water. Inspired by ʻōlelo Ma ka hana ka ‘ike (in working, one learns), the piece was on view for one night only, projected onto the historic ʻĪao Theater, yet has lived on as an exemplary moment of Wailuku community building, historic preservation and outstanding public art.
