COMMUNITY INVITED TO ATTEND ART AT THE CAPITOL
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – The Hawaiʻi State Legislature in partnership with the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (SFCA) is proud to present the 14th Annual Art at the Capitol, a free public event for residents to explore historical artwork at the Capitol as part of SFCA's "Arts in Public Places" program.
Over 38 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, live performances from Kamakawiwoʻole: Osorio Band, Ballet Hawaiʻi, Honolulu Theatre for Youth, and a panel discussion from Hawaiʻi Contemporary.
"This event is a celebration of the incredible collection of artworks that graces the halls and offices of the State Capitol, showcasing the beauty and diversity of our community," said Representative Sonny Ganaden (D-30 Kalihi, Kalihi Kai, Ke‘ehi Lagoon, Hickam Village).
"This event offers the Legislature a unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on the talented artists in our community. Art is a cornerstone of community building, and I am thrilled that we can collectively recognize and celebrate local art with the public this year," said Senator Chris Lee (D-25 Kailua, Waimānalo, Hawai‘i Kai).
