       In 1967, Hawai‘i became the first state
       in the nation to adopt a percent-for-art
       law. The purpose of the law is to beautify
       and humanize our state buildings and
       increase public access to the arts.
       Our legislators were the pioneers in recognizing the
       importance of art to the human spirit and development.
       Today, across the United States, there are over 300 pub-
       lic art programs at the federal, state and county levels.

       Since the passage of the percent-for-art law, the State
       Foundation on Culture and the Arts has acquired works
       of art from artists (local and international) and from
       juried/curated exhibits across the state, selected by
       committees and qualified experts. These works of art
       enhance the physical environment of state buildings
       while providing educational visual arts opportunities to
       the public through a Museum Without Walls program.

                                                     the arts offer a distinctive blend of benefits that
