The objectives of the SFCA’s Art in Public Places Program (APP Program) are to enhance the environmental quality of public buildings and spaces throughout the state for the enjoyment and enrichment of the public; to cultivate the public’s awareness of visual arts in all media, styles, and techniques; to contribute to the development and recognition of a professional artistic community; and to acquire, interpret, preserve, and display works of art expressive of the Hawaiian islands, the multicultural heritages of its people, and the creative interests of its artists. Works of art in the SFCA’s Art in Public Places Collection (part of the APP Program) are exhibited statewide in public schools, libraries, airports, and hospitals, State office buildings, and the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum.
