Infinite Blue — A Community Art Making Challenge

Description: Artists are invited to creatively interpret “blue”, a primary color holding historical significance in art, culture, and politics. From religious figures like Mary and Shiva to Picasso’s Blue Period to Delta blues music, this hue invokes coolness and electricity, melancholy and serenity, and appears in shades such as cobalt, ultramarine, and those found in our islands’ water and sky. Express your authentic vision of what “blue” means to you!


• All works must be original and created with the theme in mind. Though not required, artists are invited to submit a statement with their work.
• Artists may submit up to 3 entries. The juror decides the number of works selected for the exhibition (may range from 30-90 pieces).
• Art in any medium or combination of media are eligible. However, the Hui and its jurors reserve the right to reject works due to toxic or dangerous materials, excessive size, weight or difficulty in presentation.
• Entrants must be 16 years or older to participate.
• Artwork must be ready for hanging or installation.
• Off-island artists must ship their entries to the Hui in expertly packed shipping boxes or wooden crates. Shipping is at the artist’s expense and should be prepaid for return.

Hui members: $10 per entry
Non-members: $20 per entry [individual memberships: $45/year]

Juror: Rich Richardson, Executive Director of HAPA: Hawaii Academy of Performing Arts, Chinatown Artists Lofts & The Arts at Marks Garage
