For more than fifty years, the Art in Public Places Collection of the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts has been recognized as one of the most significant collections of contemporary art of Hawaiʻi. This exhibit invites you to engage with a selection of recent additions to the collection from across the Hawaiian Islands. The thirty-one artworks acquired from eighteen exhibitions offer an insight into current trends and themes in the local arts scene and provides an opportunity to see the diversity of works being created in Hawaiʻi today. SFCA Executive Director Jonathan Johnson says "this exhibit is what's going on in Hawaiʻi through the eyes of artists."

Opening reception at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum on Friday, August 3, 2018, 6:00 -- 9:00 p.m. during the free, family-friendly First Friday event upstairs in the second floor Sculpture Lobby, with live performances by Shoji Ledward (acoustic guitar). The opening reception is free and open to the public.

The museum cafe, Artizen by MW, and the museum gift shop, HiSAM Gallery Shop x MORI will also be open, with live entertainment by Bridgefinder and Aloha Got Soul. The Friends of the Hawai‘i State Art Museum will be hosting a bar with wine and beer, as well as an opening reception for their Hawaiʻi Artists 2018 Portfolio Project. Valet parking is available at the Richards St. entrance to the building.

The Two Sun Series/Cherry Blossoms and Koko Head (closed) / Masami Teraoka / oil on panel with gold leaf frame / 2017 / Art in Public Places Collection of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts / photo credit: Paul Hayashi

This piece by Masami Teraoka is two artworks in one: open, it displays a three-part painting inspired by his work in Hawaiʻi with Russian performance art group Pussy Riot. Closed, it depicts a childhood memory of seeing two suns in the sky one morning as he walked to school, one from the east and one from the west. Later, he realized that the second sun he saw was the atomic bomb that had been dropped on Hiroshima. Teraoka's works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, the National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Tate in London. This piece was acquired from the "Angels and Transgressors" exhibit at the Koa Gallery (Kapiolani Community College, Honolulu).

Kānehekili / Charlton Kūpaʻa Hee / ceramic, aerosol enamel, parachord / 2017 / Art in Public Places Collection of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts / photo credit: Paul Hayashi

One of a series of works produced for the Honolulu Biennial 2017, this ceramic vessel is meant to embody the lightning form of the Hawaiian god Kane. A graduate of Kamehameha Schools Kapālama, Kūpaʻa is a conservationist with the Hawaiʻi Department of Land and Natural Resources. "Known as the god of man, Kāne is often associated with light, lightning, water and the sun. Kānehekili was imagined to be a being that was split between dark and light evoking the duality of thunder and lightning. So too is the piece dark and light. The faint designs within each half are meant to represent lightning with angular motifs and clouds with curvilinear motifs." -- Charlton Kūpaʻa Hee

Artists in the exhibit: Doug Britt, Bai Xin Chen, Kelly Ciurej, Janet Davis, Elizabeth Forest, Yoko Haar, Dennis Hakes, Daniel Harano, Charlton Kupaʻa Hee, Brad Huck, Zenobia Lakdawalla, Tom Lieber, Robert Lober, Michelle Martin, Marques Marzan, Deyana Mielke, Yoonmi Nam, Paula Nokes, Mia O., Jon K. Ogata, Nisha Pinjani, Hiroko Sakurai, Marilee Salvator, Jennifer Stephens, Jonathan Swanz, Mark Tanabe, Masami Teraoka, Lori Uyehara, David Valdez, and Hana Yoshihata.

In the July 2018 email newsletter, in the information about the Arts Integration Framework (2018 Teaching Artist Institute Video) it was stated that "This year the SFCA partnered with the Honolulu Theatre for Youth, and provided funding for presenters." It should have read "This year SFCA and the Honolulu Theatre for Youth (HTY) co-funded the Teaching Artist Institute." HTY provided the funding for the presenters on two out of three days of the institute.
