The 2016 edition of the Art of Trash is now open for your viewing pleasure! This annual celebration of creative reuse, repurposing, and reinventing of discarded materials into works of art by Maui County artists opened this past Friday at the Maui Mall.
Akakū Media Exchange Reporter Dominique Wenzler-Steves created this video report of the evening’s festivities:
Below are some photos from Opening Night, featuring the live music of Robert Sargenti’s Junkyard Dogs and Marenje Maui, the popular Maui Trashion Show and the official opening of the 2016 gallery. Jason Hastain of Esteem Productions produced this 360-video of the Maui Trashion Show for those who missed (or wish to relive the magic)!
The 2016 Art of Trash exhibit is now open daily through April 30 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm at the Maui Mall, across from Thailand Cuisine. It is free and open to the public, but donations are most welcome to help cover Art of Trash costs, and also to empower MMN to promote and implement sustainable waste management and conservation practices across Maui County. There is a collection box at the gallery, or you can donate online.
