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