Come celebrate this year's Hawai‘i Nei Art Contest at the opening reception! Hawai‘i Nei is a juried art exhibition celebrating the native flora and fauna of Hawai‘i Island hosted by the Three Mountain Alliance, the Natural Area Reserves System, and the Wailoa Center. Amateur and professional artists of all ages have been invited to submit works of art celebrating the native plants, animals, and habitats of our beloved island, our Hawai‘i Nei. This year’s youth reception will take place from 4:30pm to 5:30pm at Wailoa Center in Hilo followed by the formal reception and award ceremony for the adult division from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Winners of each category will be announced and prizes awarded along with live music, a photo booth, and refreshments. Come dressed as your favorite native species for the annual costume contest at 5:30pm. This is a free event and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Artwork will be displayed at the Wailoa Center from November 3rd through December 15th, 2017 Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
