Art of Trash 2016 will celebrate Earth Day from April 8th–30th, 2016. The goal this year is to find artwork that promotes creative reuse, stimulates environmental awareness and redefines how we view “garbage.” Are you up to the challenge? Maybe you know of someone who works with reusable materials and would like to enter this juried show.
Entry day is on Saturday, April 2nd. Please note that driftwood pieces, water feature pieces and works that include food are not accepted. The exhibition opens on Friday, April 8th and closes on April 30th.
Selected works will be exhibited at Maui Mall. The Art of Trash is presented by nonprofits Malama Maui Nui and SharingAloha.
Exhibit organizers will receive work from artists between 9:30am and 3pm on Saturday, April 2nd, at Maui Mall in the store space across from Thailand Cuisine. The entry fee is $15 per piece. Entry forms are available online at sharingalohamaui.org and cwdhawaii.org or at the door on receiving day.
