The Schaefer International Gallery at Maui Arts & Cultural Center (The MACC) will host "Young Creatives: Inside My World," a student art exhibition, from Sunday, May 4 through Saturday, May 24 (closed to the public on Saturday, May 17). The gallery is also open before Castle Theater shows and during intermissions.
This exhibit is free and open to the public every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to come and support Maui's young artists!
The "Young Creatives: Inside My World" exhibition is a showcase for the work of high school students from across Maui who participated in The MACC's "Art-Rageous" 2013 summer program. As part of The MACC's commitment to art education for Maui's youth, the "Art-Rageous" Summer Program was launched in July 2013 as an opportunity for promising young visual artists of high school age to mentor with artist-in-residence Wes Bruce. Drawing from that experience, they have launched new works that form the foundation of this exhibit.
The “Young Creatives: Inside My World” exhibition is a showcase for the work of students from across Maui.
The exhibiting artists are: Isai Barboza, Ali M. L. Costa, Sabrina Futch, Julianna Hedge, Tiffany Keau, Eui Yol Lee, Kira Nakamura, Aysha Nishibayashi-Rincon, Jalyza Pascual and Raechelle Tagalicud.
The gallery also features works of art produced through the classroom by students in grades K through 12. Teachers were asked to guide students to create imagery based on one of the following topics: something you did that inspired you to become who you are; someone who has influenced you in a positive way; and some place you visited that was unforgettable.
Participating Maui schools in the classroom projects are: Baldwin High School, Clearview Christian Girls School, Ha?iku Elementary School, ?Iao Intermediate School, Kahului Elementary School, Kalama Intermediate School, Kamali?i Elementary School, Kamehameha Schools, Kihei Elementary School, Kula Elementary School, Lihikai Elementary School, Makawao Elementary School, Maui High School, Maui Waena Intermediate School, Pomaika?i Elementary School, Pukalani Elementary School, Pu?u Kukui Elementary School, Sacred Hearts School, Seabury Hall, St. Anthony Grade School, St. Anthony High School and Waihe?e Elementary School.
This exhibit is presented by The MACC with support from the County of Maui.
