35th Annual High School Art Competition, Exhibition and Scholarship Awards Program
Lahaina Arts Association is pleased to announce the 35th Annual High School Senior Art Competition, Exhibition and Scholarship Awards Program. Maui County High School Seniors are invited to participate. This program was established in 1969, with the first recipient being Macario Pascual, at the age of 13. This fine young man has recently been accepted into two prestigious art organizations; California Art Club (CAC) and Oil Painters of America (OPA). His paintings are in the collection of the Hawaii State Museum, State Foundation of Culture and the Arts, City and County of Honolulu and was in the office of Governor Ben Cayetano. Corporate and private collections include Alexander and Baldwin, Inc., Baldwin Pacific Corporation, Fletcher Pacific Construction, U. S. Senator Daniel Inouye, Ihilani Resorts, Malcolm MacNaughton (former CEO of Castle and Cooke), and many others abroad. His collective and immense success is a portrait of what any young artist can aspire to attain. Please participate and support this program as it provides an opportunity for children to express themselves artistically, while serving as a foundation for dreams that children can materalize through talent and creativity.
