Maui’s 2016 Art of Trash event will highlight art that is made from materials that are reused, recycled and reinvented with an opening night Trashion Show April 8 at the Maui Mall Center Stage. This year’s event was designed to celebrate Earth Day and will run April 8-30 with the goal of finding artwork that promotes creative reuse, stimulates environmental awareness and redefines how we view “garbage.”
Entry day for the Art of Trash 2016 juried show is April 2. Exhibit organizers will be accepting work from artists between 9:30am and 3pm at Maui Mall in the store space across from Thailand Cuisine; the entry fee is $15 per piece. Please note that driftwood pieces, water-feature pieces and works that include food are not accepted.
The Art of Trash opening reception will be held on Friday, April 8 at 6pm at the Maui Mall center stage. The event will include the Maui Trashion fashion show, Robert Sargenti’s Junkyard Band and Marenje performers. Attendees are encouraged to wear their own trashion creations.
The Art of Trash is presented by the nonprofit organizations Malama Maui Nui and SharingAloha.
