The Hawai‘i State Art Museum (HiSAM) is the “People’s Museum”. HiSAM is a venue for the Art in Public Places Collection of the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts; most of the collection is out in public buildings including schools, libraries, hospitals, and legislative offices. The collection is primarily contemporary works of art that have a connection to Hawaii (e.g. artist born and raised in Hawaii). For more information about the SFCA, visit their website, www.sfca.hawaii.gov.
Admission to museum galleries and activities is always FREE.
