Art of Trash Exhibit and Trashion Show
Malama Maui Nui News Release
Malama Maui Nui is thrilled to announce that the Art of Trash exhibition and Trashion Show opens April 22 at MalamaMauiNui.org/ArtOfTrash!
Hosted by Malama Maui Nui and sponsored by the County of Maui’s Environmental Protection and Sustainability Division, the Art of Trash and Trashion Show is an annual juried art exhibition that showcases the reimagination of previously used materials as elements for creative composition. All pieces are original work made from recycled and/or reused material. The Jurors’ Choice Awards are based on the transformation of material, good craftsmanship, and, of course, overall creativity.
Malama Maui Nui is excited to showcase juror-selected pieces by dozens of artists and designers from all over Maui Nui, including Molokai. The pieces were photographed and compiled into a gorgeous magazine that is digitally available for viewing at MalamaMauiNui.org/ArtOfTrash. Want to add a conversation-starter statement piece to your coffee table? The magazine is also available for purchase!
Show your community artists some love by voting for your favorite pieces for the Community Choice Awards. In doing so, you’ll automatically get entered into a drawing for a free Art of Trash T-shirt and poster! Community Choice Award winners will be published in May.
“How do I create something with deeper meaning and impact? How do I get the message of beauty, repair, and healing across using simple, common, broken materials? These are the questions that are driving my creations,” said artist Jacob Danish.
