Artists sought for
Ku‘u Home Award

'Ulu, or breadfruit, is the theme of the Liberty House Ku'u Home Award.

Any Hawaii artist may enter the contest, which carries a $5,000 prize and mention on a perpetual plaque.

Works in any medium will be accepted, they can be functional or nonfunctional in nature.

Artists are invited to incorporate the 'ulu theme through materials, images or symbolism. The 'ulu represents new beginning and growth. Polynesians took the 'ulu on their voyages and planted it immediately upon arriving in new lands.

A public exhibition and sale of all selected works will take place Sept. 9 to 25 at Liberty House Ala Moana. Visitors will be able to vote for the winner of the Na Po'e, or People's Choice, Award. That winner will be named on a perpetual plaque.

The contest is named after Liberty House's year-old Ku'u Home Island Gifts Department, which features the work of 65 local artists.

Ku'u Home Award jurors will consider theme, presentation, originality, integrity, concept, creativity, design, workmanship material and execution. The entry deadline is July 26.

For entry forms or more information, call 945-8149, email, or stop by the Ala Moana store manager's office on the third floor.
