2020 Legislative Grants in Aid Cancelled
The Hawaiʻi State Legislature has announced that the legislature will not be funding its annual grants-in-aid (GIA) in 2020 due to the State's changing financial circumstances.
In 2019, the Legislature awarded nearly $30 million in grants to nonprofits throughout the state. The Hawaiʻi State Legislature awards grants are funded by the State under Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes, Chapter 42F. These grants are awarded for Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) to construct and/or repair buildings and other facilities, or for operating funds to support programs.
Help Hawai‘i Get Funding for COVID-19 Relief
The National Endowment for the Arts together with Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit for advancing the arts, have created a survey to assess the economic impact of COVID-19 on nonprofits arts organizations. We urge all Hawai‘i arts and culture organizations, creative workers, cultural practitioners, and educators to participate, so the virus’ effect on our state’s arts infrastructure can be documented.
Your answers are critically important. They create the data-backed case for advocacy to include the arts in emergency relief funding that might be allocated at the federal or state levels.
Take the five-minute survey online at AFTA COVID-19 Arts Impact Survey.

Hawaiʻi State Art Museum Re-opens Monday, July 13, with new exhibit
The Hawaiʻi State Art Museum (HiSAM) will re-open to the public on Monday, July 13, with a new exhibit, "Mai hoʻohuli i ka lima i luna". This exhibition, curated by guest curators Drew Broderick, Kaʻili Chun and Kapulani Landgraf, will spread out across HiSAM over the course of a year, occupying different spaces at different times—a wall display case, gift shop, café, and sculpture garden on the first floor, and a sculpture lobby and multiple gallery rooms on the second floor. The curatorial response varies with each space as do the artworks. In certain moments the exhibition is conventional, in others experimental: mapping interpersonal relations within a group of artists, paying attention to materials and techniques, recognizing struggles of the past, dwelling with kaona in the present, and facing indigenous futures already in the making.
For over a half a century now, the Art in Public Places Collection of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts has been recognized as one of the most significant collections of late twentieth and early twenty-first century art in Hawai‘i. The collection enhances the environmental quality of public buildings and spaces throughout the state for the enjoyment and enrichment of the public.
