|Yin and yang, hearts and cows! Free range cows on the bluff at the Hookipa pillbox. Photo taken 5/7/14. This street art was painted over a Charli Scott memorial.|
|Yin yang symbol from a different vantage. Lots of hearts. Another version of this mural was posted earlier, under the U post.|
|Yield street sign, covered in stickers. Street signs, especially north shore or at beach parks are often slathered with stickers. Here is the "Maui Family" sticker that was mentioned in an earlier post in this series.|
My theme this year is “Signs, Stickers, Street Art, and Graffiti on Maui.” As a departure from my A to Z Challenge posts in previous years, the blog posts have been very short. To read more about my theme and how I interpreted it, visit here.
Many of these photos depict a structure from WWII, a concrete building that used to be an old communications station. It’s visible from the highway near Hookipa, a famous windsurfing spot. Although the pillbox is located on private land, it has become something of a community message board, and is painted and repainted with greetings, signs, random pictures and graffiti. I think of it as the Hookipa pillbox – if you google “WWII pillbox, ” you’ll see similar structures.
