On September 20, 2023, the SFCA Board of Commissioners approved the acquisition of twenty-one artworks for the SFCA Art in Public Places Collection. All of the works were nominated by committees visiting Hawaiʻi exhibitions. A list of artworks recently approved for acquisition (purchase or gift) can be viewed on our Art in Public Places Program page, along with information about how to invite a committee to an exhibit and a link to the Art in Public Places Collection online photo album of artworks.
