Nānākuli Public Library

The brand new Nānākuli Public Library opened on April 14, 2018, and the SFCA's Exhibit Specialist team installed artwork in the library shortly afterwards.

The Hawaiʻi State Capitol building has over 800 works of art from the SFCA's Art in Public Places Collection on display in the Governor's office, legislator's offices, conference rooms, and other public spaces.

Hawaiʻi Senate Communications has posted several photos of the 2018 Art at the Capitol event online: Art at the Capitol (April 6, 2018)

843eb2a2-b663-4b1d-9f53-02b27d1f5ff5.jpg

Maui artist Sidney Yee wrote "I want to have people value art before real estate" on the Before I Die... wall during the 2018 Art at the Capitol event. Senator Brian Taniguchi proposed having the Before I Die... wall at the event, partly because of the recent false missile alert and how it had people thinking a little more about their mortality. The wall was up April 3 - 6 on the fourth floor of the Hawaiʻi State Capitol Building.

Before I Die... walls started in New Orleans with artist Candy Chang and over 2,000 walls have now been in locations all over the world. Learn more about Before I Die... in Candy Chang's TED Talk video and at the official Before I Die... website.
