To All Artists:

         Thank you for reviewing this application, and hopefully entering the annual Lahaina Poster Contest. Despite the destruction and disruption all of us on Maui are currently experiencing, Lahaina will rise again. The Lahaina we all love will come back more vibrant than before as Lahaina has always done throughout all eras of Maui’s history. 


I look forward to seeing your favorite images of Lahaina either painted before the fire or new paintings of your memories of Lahaina prior to the fire of August 8th


Mahalo for participating!
