WAIPAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The next time you go to grab Hawaiian food at a Waipahu Restaurant, you may notice something a bit different.

Now you can appreciate the food and art at Highway Inn.

The artists unveiled a mural titled "Ekahi" on the restaurant's outer wall Sunday.

It shows historical and cultural images special to the Waipahu community.

Those who worked on the project got the word out through, what else? Social media websites, of course!

"The youth today is different, instead of going out guerilla marketing, all you have to do is click a button and you've got thousands of people listening to your voice", said 808 Urban Artist Ralph Delacruz

The artwork is the first of a series of large-scale murals aimed at community residents.
