COMMUNITY INVITED TO ATTEND 15th ANNUAL ART AT THE CAPITOL

Foundation on Culture and the Arts (SFCA), will present the 15th Annual Art at the Capitol, a free public event for the community to explore historical artwork at the Capitol as part of SFCA's "Arts in Public Places" program.

 

Over 30 legislators will take part in the exhibition of art in their offices, along with the Office of the Governor, the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, and the Public Access Room. The event will also present short films from the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival, and live performances from Ballet Hawaiʻi, Honolulu Theatre for Youth, and the Hawaiʻi Youth Symphony.

 

"Now in its fifteenth year, Art at the Capitol is a wonderful opportunity to showcase local talent across artforms. We are excited to welcome our neighbors to their Capitol for an evening of art, music, film, dance, poetry, chess, and more," said Senator Chris Lee (Senate District 25 - Kailua, Waimānalo, Hawai‘i Kai).

 

"We are so grateful to host the community at the 15th Annual Art at the Capitol event. This is a celebration of the connection between artists, art communities, and the government that serves them. We invite you to celebrate with us!" said Representative Sonny Ganaden

(House District 30 - Kalihi, Kalihi Kai, Ke‘ehi Lagoon, Hickam Village).

 

"We welcome the public to join us for a night of civic engagement while celebrating local artists and their work," said Representative Adrian K. Tam (House District 24 - Waikīkī).
