Relocatable Works of Art Acquisitions, Fiscal Year 2017 (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017)

The Relocatable Works of Art Program (RWA) purchases works for temporary installation at specific state public places, including the Hawai‘i State Art Museum. These artworks, also known as Relocatable Works of Art, are intended for rotation among state buildings throughout Hawai‘i in order that the widest possible audiences throughout the state have access to view these works. The budget for purchasing works of art is proposed by the SFCA in its biennial budget that is presented within the Executive Budget to the Hawai‘i State Legislature. Throughout the year, designated Art in Public Places Program staff recommend site visits to special exhibitions and, when appropriate, to acquire works of art. Currently, the SFCA primarily considers attending significant public juried exhibitions held within the state. Upon approval of the sites, the RWA Program staff convenes an Acquisition Award Selection Committee (AASC) to each exhibition or studio visit. To learn more about the Relocatable Works of Art Program, including how to invite an AASC to an exhibit and how to apply to volunteer as a Visual Art Consultant for an AASC, please read more on the RWA webpage: Relocatable Works of Art Program.

For the current locations of specific works of art, please contact Ozzie Kotani, Registrar, at 586-9956 or [email protected], or Wanda Anae-Onishi, Collections Manager, at 586-9952 or [email protected].

Please note that artwork displayed in student art exhibits (such as the Hawai‘i Regional Scholastic Art Awards and Young Artists of Hawai‘i) are not included in the collection or the online catalog.
