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 Application online at Hawaii.GoSmart.org. If you have any questions, please call (808) 586-0300 or email Art in Public Places Curator Elizabeth Baxter at [email protected]
AASC Request Application submissions will only be accepted online at Hawaii.GoSmart.org. Please review the AASC Guidelines carefully. If your exhibition fits within the AASC Guidelines, we invite you to complete and submit an AASC Request Application. An Applicant Tutorial on using the new Hawaii.GoSmart online portal is provided below.
Requests must be submitted through Hawaii.GoSmart.org at least 4 months before 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 scheduled after approval by the SFCA Board of Commissioners.
