April 23 – May 2, 2014
From April 23 through May 2 the main gallery of the Firehouse Gallery will be displaying entries from the 9th Annual Art of Recycling School Competition. This exhibition, in collaboration with Recycle Hawai’i, features young artists from North Hawaii. It will be on display from April 23-May 2 at the Firehouse Gallery. Come in and see how creative these kids can be while also diverting valuable resources from our landfills.
Recycle Hawaii’s Art of Recycling School Competition is an island wide, annual competition, inviting students of all grade levels to create and enter artistic creations from recycled or reused items. The event educates students and the community about the importance of creatively dealing with our island’s waste issues. All K-12 schools and home schools can join this fun-filled program. This year three separate shows will be held around the island: one in East Hawaii (April 4-8 at Prince Kuhio Plaza, Hilo), one in West Hawaii (April 11-15 at Kona International Market), and this one in North Hawaii.
Outstanding entries were selected for individual and group (of 2 or more students) categories in Elementary, Middle, and High school levels (grades are judged together for each level). Students, teachers and the public are invited to attend the reception and awards ceremony from 3:00 – 4:00 pm on Thursday, April 24 at the Firehouse Gallery. This program is funded in part by the Hawai’i County Department of Environmental Management. Questions? Contact Marsha Hee, phone/fax: 985-8725 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
