We are working on a new creative project to support the further programming and community work of 808 Urban, ii gallery, R/D and Na Mea Hawai’i, while promoting the talent of local artists. Up to 50 pieces of art will be professionally produced into a limited edition art card deck that can be kept, traded, or used for special offers during the Night Market. Our concept is to utilize art as a tool to engage the community in creative exchanges.
All participating Artists will receive an art card deck and 5 of their art cards for personal use. Artist’s Contact information will be included on the back of the card. February’s night market is especially exciting as it coincides with POW WOW Hawai’i and the reopening of R/D and ii gallery, and we are expecting thousands of attendees.
Mahalo for considering this opportunity to support local community arts programming! We appreciate the work of local artists and highly respect the dedication required to continue your work. If you have any questions please contact Sierra 808-283-3078 or Marissa 808-343-0240.
