The Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (HSFCA) is now accepting Artists in the Schools (AITS) grant applications for the 2017-2018 school year.


WHAT - Artists in the Schools grant applications for the 2017-2018 school year


WHERE - sfca.hawaii.gov/grants-programs/artists-in-the-schools/


WHEN - February 24, 2017 - May 2, 2017

Honolulu, Hawai`i--


All public schools, including public charter schools, may apply for grants of up to $6,000 per school for artist residencies to be conducted during the 2017-2018 school year. Schools must contribute 10% of the grant amount received, in cash, towards residency expenses. AITS grants are meant to enhance a school's fine arts curriculum, not supplant it.


We are excited to announce a new category of AITS funding specifically for Neighbor Island schools that have an HSFCA Art in Public Places commissioned work of art on campus that was installed after 1993. The list of eligible schools is on our website, along with FAQs about this new pilot project: Artists in the Schools. The AITS Program provides students with an engaging, creative and fun learning experience based on the Fine Arts standards through residencies with teaching artists from the Artistic Teaching Partners Roster. Many of these artists integrate their art form with other core curriculum areas, such as language arts, math, social studies and science, meeting both Fine Arts and other core standards.

About the Hawai`i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts
The Hawai`i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (HSFCA) was founded in 1965 as the official arts agency of the State of Hawai`i. The mission of the HSFCA is to promote, perpetuate, preserve and encourage culture and the arts as central to the quality of life of the people of Hawai‘i. HSFCA funding is provided by the State of Hawai`i and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The HSFCA is administratively attached to the Department of Accounting and General Services(Hawai‘i Revised Statutes Chapter 9).

About the Art in Public Places Collection of the HSFCA
In 1967, the Hawai‘i State Legislature passed the Art-in-State-Buildings Law. Signed by Governor John A. Burns, the law established the Art in Public Places Program (APP) for the SFCA. Hawai‘i became the first state to set aside one percent of the construction and renovation costs of state buildings to acquire and commission works of visual art that beautify and humanize the built environment. The program distributes works of art in publicly accessible state buildings to expand opportunities for aesthetic and educational experiences as part of daily life. Over its fifty year history, the APP Collection has been recognized as one of the most significant collections of modern and contemporary art of Hawai‘i.
