Downtown Love
Tuesday, February 14, 2006 @ 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Meet at the intersection of Bishop & King Street
Imagine Bishop Street lined with signwavers. Each full of smiles and generously sharing their aloha for downtown. Bankers, lawyers, and office people mixed with aunties, uncles, and students giving and receiving blessing unto one another. The air will be filled with surprise, laughter, with encouragement and sincerity. It's about declaring truths that should be spoken and heard. It's about the people of Hawaii rising up as the state of aloha.

"...all in all, this event is simply about blessing an important sector of our state. We would like to show our appreciation to the people who work and live in the heart of Honolulu. Speaking out compliments and encouragement...without agenda and with no strings attached...

Downtown love is the third generation in a series of (art) projects incorporating signs and their ability to bestow positivism among an audience. Phrases on "No Parking" signs were replaced with those of "You're great" or "You look beautiful today" at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Nate Chung Loves UH Day, a larger scale public endeavor on the University of Hawaii, Manoa campus in 2004, composed of over fifty sign wavers speaking out compliments and wishing students the best on their finals. Notably, this second generation project received attention from the local media...The greatest reward was in the smiles of passing students and staff. In one instance, a student came up to a signwaver with tears streaming down her face saying what we had done restored her hope in the face of a rough year. Indeed, the climate shifted that day. Life-giving words yielded uplifted statures.

Downtown Love is mostly self-funded. Any donation to this cause would be joyfully cherished. Majority of the costs are for printing of the signs and t-shirts."
