Wahi Pana Auwahi


Call to Artists

Art is an important force, translating and shaping our human world. When combined with nature, it becomes especially powerful and evocative, rooted in our ancestral beginnings as a species.

We are excited and honored to announce a call to artists for a juried art show titled 'Wahi Pana Auwahi' being held at the Hui No`eau Visual Arts Center, upcountry Maui this summer. 

Artists are invited to explore and share the social, cultural, and biological aspects of what saving a Hawaiian forest at Auwahi invokes. Ecological restoration is a relatively new and exciting type of applied science where not only forest tracts are brought back to life, but that in the doing so, the human community itself is restored and renewed.
The exhibit will showcase four different realms of Auwahi forest:

  1. Auwahi before humans
  2. Auwahi, wahi pana for the people of old
  3. The destruction of Auwahi forest
  4. The rebirth of Auwahi forest through the hands of the community

Please visit our website for more information on the forest at Auwahi. 

The show will debut on Family Day June 30th on the Hui No’eau galleries and grounds. All works must be submitted by June 19 for review by the jury selection committee.

To start the process of getting involved, check out the Hui’s website for further instructions and entry forms.
