Students and visitors in the 2023 Young Artists of Hawaiʻi exhibit.
Exhibit open May 20 – July 8, 2023. 2023 theme: “Good Leaders Taking Action”: What are the things that leaders and our community members are doing to make our neighborhoods, our island community, and our planet home better? Leaders and community members – that’s you and me – must work together if change is going to be impactful, meaningful, and generational. What do you see leaders and community members doing in your neighborhood, our island community, and our planet home? What do you want to see?
Young Artists of Hawaiʻi is an annual student art competition and exhibition. Presented by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority, and Gravitas Pasifika, this program recognizes creative excellence among Hawaiʻi’s public and private school students, Kindergarten through seventh grade. A panel of judges select 96 works for the exhibition, which is presented at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum. Replicas of the artworks are also displayed at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center for one year, in the Pa Kamaliʻi Courtyard on the third floor.
About the SFCA
The Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (SFCA) is Hawaiʻi’s state government arts agency. Established in 1965 by the Hawaiʻi State Legislature, through the vision and effort of Hawaiʻi leaders, the creation of a state arts agency made Hawaiʻi eligible to receive federal grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), newly established on September 29, 1965. The SFCA is administratively attached to the Department of Accounting and General Services and funded by the State of Hawaiʻi and the National Endowment for the Arts.
What is a State Arts Agency?
State arts agencies were created by legislatures and governors to promote the arts and reduce barriers to cultural participation. Every state and U.S. jurisdiction has a designated arts agency, providing grants, services, and leadership that make the arts accessible to everyone. State arts agencies are funded through appropriations from state legislatures. State arts agencies also receive 40% of the federal grant dollars Congress provides to the National Endowment for the Arts.
