The Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger, putting the finishing touches on a $35 million update, has announced a partnership with several local artists whose works will be featured at the property.
The "Beachcomber Originals" program consists of a dozen collaborators including craft brewers, musicians, artists and athletes.
"Our Beachcomber Originals are social-savvy tastemakers who, through this exclusive partnership with Outrigger, manifest their shared love of Waikiki Beach and Hawaiian culture via their artwork and aloha," Ike Cockett, general manager of Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger, said in a statement. "Guests of Waikiki Beachcomber can enjoy the original aesthetic and culinary creations of this local artist network, as well as have opportunities to interact with them through our 'B Original' crafted series."
The works of surf photographer Zak Noyle are prominently featured in the hotel, including on the wall behind the headboard of every guestroom. Additionally, Noyle will also participate in regular programming such as a quarterly talk-story series and aqua-photography sessions.
Other collaborators include muralist Erin Ibarra; founder and CEO of Maui Brewing Co. Garrett Marrero; surfer and artist Haa Keaulana; Makana, a slack-key guitarist, singer and composer; Vince Lim, an adventure photographer; and fiber artist Marques Hanalei Marzan.
