About the 2008 Sister Cities Youth Art Showcase
The Maui County Sister Cities Foundation proudly announces that entries are being sought for the 2008 Young Artist Showcase. This year’s theme is “A Reflection of Your Community.”
This year, one piece of Maui art will be chosen to be displayed at the 20th Sister Cities International Annual Young Artist Showcase in Kansas City, Missouri. In previous years, art from some of Maui County’s 22 Sister Cities have also participated in the display of young talent. Last year’s entry from Sarrat, Philippines was selected as one of ten winning entries by Sister Cities International and has been part of a US Tour which will be displayed at the Maui County Business Resource Center during the month of April.
