Star Sailor at Onizuka Crossing

Ellison Onizuka was a Japanese American astronaut from Kealakekua, Hawaii who died in the destruction of the Space Shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986. This art piece is named “Star Sailor” (from the roots of the word ‘astronaut’) to pay homage to Ellison Onizuka's love of deep sea fishing, his home state of Hawaii, and his achievements with NASA. This piece explores the parallel harmonies of the deep sea and deep space through Col. Onizuka’s relationship to them.
