The Art of Trash 2012, presented by the Community Work Day Program and SharingAloha, will receive work from artists on Saturday, April 14th at Maui Mall from 9:30am to 3pm.  Entry fee is $10 per piece.

The annual exhibit showcases everyday objects that have been transformed and given new life.  Artists throughout Maui County continue to change the way the community defines reuse by finding creative ways of keeping recyclable items out of our landfill. 

“Maui’s Art of Trash has always had a playful energy and an underlying awareness of just how serious a matter reuse and recycling can be,” said Ira Ono - founder, juror and creator of the exhibit.

“This is a show of limitless possibilities, unconventional materials and challenging construction techniques,” said Wilma Nakamura, coordinator of the exhibition.

If you are an artist who creates artwork from recycled materials, be sure to enter this juried show.  Please note that driftwood pieces, water feature pieces and works that include food will NOT be accepted.

Entry forms are available at all public libraries and online at  

For more information regarding the Art of Trash, please call Wilma Nakamura at 573-3911.

The opening of the exhibition and the Maui Trashion Trash Art Fashion Show will be on Friday, April 20th, 2012 at 6pm at Maui Mall.  Opening night is FREE and open to the public.  Trash fashion attire is encouraged.
