Imua – To Move Forward With Spirit
Sculptor Jan-Michelle Sawyer conceptualized Voyager-Holokai while living in Hawaii and being close to the place where the ancient canoes traveled through the seas. Our goal is to install the sculpture in a public setting in Hawaii so that people who love all things Hawaiian can read about the rich history of the sea voyager. To make this happen our quest begins with an invitation to you. Join hands with us to make this endeavor a reality.
We are not soliciting any funds from State or Federal agencies. This will be a grass-roots effort by those who feel a bond to the art and culture of this rugged and romantic land.
Friends of Voyager-Holokai
As a community, we have the obligation to honor people, places, cultures and events in history. This is what gives meaning and purpose to our lives – the connection to those who walked the land and sailed the seas before us. When present and future generations are inspired by these heroic individuals and their legacies, an enhanced sense of community pride emerges.
Our goal is to gather a strong list of supporters who want to see the Voyager-Holokai Sculpture Project move forward. We need to find a suitable location in which to install the sculpture. This may involve a private party (such as a hotel) donating a small piece of land for the site placement or it may mean that the State of Hawaii donates an appropriate space in which to install the sculpture. Either way, we need to show community support.
Our first task is to cast the sculpture in bronze. Then, we will secure the balance of the funding to create a pedestal on which the sculpture will rest. A plaque will be placed on the pedestal to commemorate sea voyagers. Finally, we will secure an appropriate placement for the sculpture. Once this is accomplished, we will install it in its rightful place and hold a community dedication.
