Artworks for the Art in Public Places Collection are selected via an Acquisition Award Selection Committee (AASC) from juried or curated exhibits statewide. An AASC visit must be requested by the exhibition organizers. A list of recent and upcoming exhibits approved for a visit is at the bottom of this page.
Acquisition Award Selection Committees visit exhibitions to recommend works for the Art in Public Places Collection. To request a committee to visit your exhibition, please complete and submit an AASC request form to the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts at 250 S. Hotel Street, 2nd Floor, Honolulu, HI 96813. If you have any questions, please call (808) 586-0300 or email Art in Public Places Curator Elizabeth Baxter at [email protected]
Requests must be received at the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts at least 6 months prior to the opening reception of the exhibition
The Art in Public Places Program staff recommends exhibitions for the AASC schedule based on application information. Exhibitions are placed on the schedule only after they are approved by the Commission of the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.
