Art in Public Places

The purpose of the Art in Public Places program is to encourage and promote culture and the arts, particularly in the field of visual arts, across Hawaiʻi through the following means: Improving the environmental quality of state public buildings and spaces throughout the state to enrich public enjoyment, cultivating awareness, appreciation, and understanding of visual arts through all media, styles, and techniques. And, contributing to the development and recognition of a professional artistic community.

Through acquiring, preserving, and displaying works of art, the APP program aids in capturing the essence of the Hawaiian Islands’ character, the multicultural heritage of its inhabitants, and the diverse creative interests of its artists.
