Art of Trash
Malama Maui Nui News Release
The Art of Trash Virtual Exhibition is an annual juried exhibition that includes an Art Gallery and a Trashion Show, which inspires people to reimagine our resources, such as previously used materials, as elements for creative inspiration. Malama Maui Nui, an environmental nonprofit, is excited to announce that The Art of Trash 2021 Virtual Exhibition will be live in April at MalamaMauiNui.org/ArtOfTrash!
Start creating now so that you’re ready to virtually submit your pieces in early 2021! Residents of Molokai, Lanai and Maui are invited to create art pieces for the Art Gallery and/or fashion pieces for the Trashion Show. Participants can submit multiple pieces for both the Art Gallery and the Trashion Show.
All Art Gallery and Trashion Show entries must be original work made from recycled and/or reused material. Natural items such as drift wood, shells, food, etc. are discouraged. The juror 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 Virtual Exhibition 2021 in April. Impressive prizes will be awarded to winners of the Juror’s Choice Awards and Community Choice Awards!
