The Brewery Block, home to Kona Brewing headquarters, will be transformed with the live painting and placement of a mural from 6 to 11 p. m. Saturday, Aug. 16.

The mural-painting is part of ONO Kona, or “Our Night Out, Kona,” a fundraiser for Mele Murals.

Mele Murals is an arts advocacy group founded by the Estria Foundation, which encourages leadership and storytelling in youth by giving them a platform to create art that’s deeply connected to the history of Hawai‘i, said an ONO Kona release.

The event will also feature Hawaiian-made crafts, food, a skateboard half-pipe, Kona Brewing Company beer garden and live music.

The team of artists, led by Estria and John “Prime” Hina of 808 Urban, will be painting a mural live on 4×8 boards that will be placed on the Makai Building within the Brewery Block.
