Kawananakoa School Improvements – Honolulu HI

Description

“The lava rock terracing at Kawananakoa School (1934), as well as the fountain featuring bas reliefs by Margarite Blasingame, resulted from the continuation of a number of the CWA’s projects by FERA.”

Blasingame was an American sculptor born in Honolulu in 1906. She did a number of projects under federal support during the Great Depression, including this “Hawaiian Decagonal Fountain” at the Kawananakoa School.
