2012 Juror’s Choice Award: “Sublime Pie” by Bob Flint


Juror, Ira Ono’s Statement

As the juror of Art of Trash 2013, I will be looking for well constructed pieces that make a personal statement about our fragile island environment. I hope to find pieces that stretch the imagination and address the concept of reuse and recycling.

Who May Enter and What

All entries must be original work made from recycled and/or reused material (no driftwood or natural materials). Create art that gives new life to items that are no longer functional for their original purpose. No water feature or food pieces.

  • Eligibility: Open to Maui, Lana‘i, Moloka‘i artists only.
  • When: Enter on Saturday, April 13, 9:30am – 3pm, Maui Mall.
  • Labeling, fees, presentation: Entry fee is  $10.00 per piece. No limit. All work must be ready for installation. Provide eye hooks or wire for hanging.
  • Requirements: ALL ARTISTS MUST Volunteer to SIT the show between April 20 – May 12. The Art of Trash exhibit stays open when we have volunteers to sit the show.
