We want to thank the 188 artists who worked and researched Maui Nui’s native species to enter the exhibit this year! Whether your piece was selected or not, your dedication to use your talent to help raise awareness about our unique flora and fauna means so much to us. We sincerely hope you enjoyed the process and possibly found out something new about our beautiful home. With 257 entries it took the jurors Tamara Sherrill and Mike Takemoto several hours to decide which 89 pieces made it into the exhibit. We hope that you will continue this educational journey by joining us at all the events throughout the exhibit.
