30 Days of Black & White

: Aloha, Maui residents, visitors and online friends! Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center challenges YOU to participate in its second ever PHOTO-A-DAY Challenge!

HOW IT WORKS: Starting Monday, 1/28, spend 30 days posting your smartphone photos on Instagram or Twitter, inspired by the daily prompts listed here. Be sure to tag your photos and tweets with with hashtag #huiblackandwhite so we can keep track of all of our players! At the end of the 30 days, we’ll award the top players with awesome Hui prizes. Can’t commit to all 30 days? No problem! Join in or opt out anytime, it’s supposed to be FUN!

WHY WE’RE DOING IT: It’s a fun and easy way for everyone to be creative! We are also using this fun exercise as a way to motivate and inspire our social media network to submit entries to our next open-call art exhibition “The New Black: Black & White Photography” featuring guest juror Darrell Orwig. This idea was a smash hit in October 2012 as we prepared for the Hui No’eau Maui Mural Project (you can see many of the images that were tagged with #mauieveryday referenced in our mural in Wailuku in the corner of Market & Main streets) - let’s keep the momentum going!

With a mission to unlock creativity through exceptional visual arts education, the Hui sees this challenge as a way to create art by and for our entire online community!

Once you add #huiblackandwhite to your photo, the hashtag becomes a live link that will lead you to all of the other entries. Check in regularly to see what our community has posted or visit our Facebook page at for highlights. Comment, love, and retweet to your heart’s content!

Wednesday, February 27 is receiving day for “The New Black: Black & White Exhibition”. Call the Hui at (808) 572-6560 or visit us online at for details.
