Art of Trash and Trashion Show
Malama Maui Nui News Release
Malama Maui Nui is excited to announce that submissions are now being accepted for The Art of Trash and Trashion Show slated to open in April 2022 at MMNui.org/ArtOfTrash! If you haven’t already done so, start creating now! Submissions close Feb. 1, 2022.
The Art of Trash Exhibition and Trashion Show are annual, juried events that inspire community members to reimagine our resources, such as previously used materials, as elements for creative inspiration. All pieces are original work made from recycled and/or reused material.
Residents of Molokai, along with Maui and Lanai, are invited to create art pieces for the Exhibition and/or fashion pieces for the Trashion Show. Participants can submit multiple pieces for both the Exhibition and the Trashion Show at MMNui.org/ArtOfTrash. To help you prepare, a sample of the submission form and a list of requirements for submission are also posted on the website.
All pieces must be made from recycled and/or reused material. Natural items such as drift wood, shells, food, etc. are not allowed. The jurors will be looking for the transformation of material, good craftsmanship and, of course, overall creativity. If your piece gets selected, it will be featured in The Art of Trash and/or Trashion Show in April 2022. Impressive prizes will be awarded to winners of the Juror’s Choice Awards and Community Choice Awards!
