32nd Annual Trash Art Show- CALL FOR ENTRY

Statement of Juror Ira Ono:

“Once again, artists are in the vanguard of public awareness. I believe they were among the first to experiment with recycling on a personal level. (Art supplies can be expensive!) With this in mind, I invite Big Island artists to enter up to 3 pieces for this juried exhibit. I will select works best representing the concept of art from trash. Originality, creativity and craftsmanship count. Large, three dimensional pieces are encouraged”

INTAKE: September 26th (Saturday) from 9AM-12PM on site at the EHCC (141 Kalakaua St, Downtown Hilo).

  • All entries must be the original works of artists living on the Big Island, not previously shown in a juried exhibit. 

  • Flat rate entry fee of $20.00 - make the most out of it and enter UP TO 3 pieces! You do not need to be an EHCC Member to enter.
