Maui’s 2017 Art of Trash show will be accepting entries for the annual juried exhibition from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 1st at the Maui Mall.
Art of Trash, held during the month of April to celebrate Earth Day, features everyday discarded recyclable items that have been given new life in art pieces. Artists are encouraged to start collecting, creating, designing, and saving recyclable materials that will inspire their artwork.
Artists entering the competition should be mindful that pieces made from natural materials, water feature pieces and works that include food will not be accepted. Judy Bruder, owner of Duck Soup, will jury the show.
Art of Trash is presented by local nonprofits Mālama Maui Nui and SharingAloha. This exhibition changes environmental awareness of what is trash and gives new perspective on how we might reduce our footprint by finding creative ways to keep reusable items out of our landfill.
There is a $15 per piece entry fee. Entry forms are available online at sharingalohamaui.org. For more information regarding the Art of Trash 2017 exhibition, call Mālama Maui Nuiat 808-877-2524. For some creative inspiration, visit www.facebook.com/artoftrash.
