UPDATE: The 12th annual Art at the Capitol event at the State Capitol has been canceled as a precaution to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.
The public is invited to attend the 12th annual Art at the Capitol on Friday, April 3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the State Capitol. At this festive and free event, visitors are welcome to view art works by local artists that are displayed in the offices of the Legislature.
The theme this year, “Art IN the Capitol: Up Close and Personal,” reflects on the use of portraits in the public art collection including the official portraits of prior governors now hanging in the Governor's Ceremonial Office.
Also on display will be an amateur art exhibit featuring self-portraits created by State Legislators and their staff members.
Art at the Capitol begins with the opening program at 4:30 p.m. in conference room 329 that includes an introduction of artists and special guests. Self-guided tours start at 5 p.m. and the galleries of the Senate and House will be open to view videos from previous events.
Throughout the evening, music will be performed by the Hawai‘i Youth Symphony. The program ends at 7 p.m., however the public is invited to continue the celebration of local art and music just across the street at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum, which will be open until 9 p.m. and other events in downtown Honolulu.
