The Art of Trash 2021 Virtual Exhibition will be live in April at MalamaMauiNui.org/ArtOfTrash! Hosted by Mālama Maui Nui and sponsored by the County of Maui’s Environmental Protection & Sustainability Division, the Art of Trash is an annual juried exhibition that includes an Art Gallery & a Trashion Show, which inspires people to reimagine our resources, such as previously used materials, as elements for creative inspiration.
Submissions will be accepted virtually from February 1 – March 1. To submit an art piece for the Art Gallery and/or a fashion piece for the Trashion Show, visit MalamaMauiNui.org/ArtOfTrash and follow the provided instructions. Participants can submit multiple pieces for both the Art Gallery and the Trashion Show. The registration fee is $15 per piece and proceeds will benefit Mālama Maui Nui.
All Art Gallery & 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.
Thanks to the EACH Foundation’s Trashion Show sponsorship, juror-selected Trashion Show pieces will be professionally filmed while designers “walk the runway” in their designs! The resulting video will be showcased in the Virtual Exhibition. Impressive prizes will be awarded to winners of the Juror’s Choice Awards and Community Choice Awards!
Mālama Maui Nui is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers residents to work together to keep Maui Nui clean, safe and healthy.
