National Arts Program Annual Exhibit

at Honolulu Hale


Artwork created by City employees and their family members will be on display August 18 to 28 at City Hall.  The exhibit is being co-sponsored by The National Arts Program Foundation of Malvern, Pennsylvania, and the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts.


This will be the third annual exhibit of The National Arts Program in Honolulu.  City employees and their families have submitted more than 150 works for display in the past two years.


City employees produced a wide variety of original paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and crafts.  All will be displayed and judged by professional arts practitioners in four categories:  amateur, intermediate, professional, and youth.  Mayor Mufi Hannemann will announce the winning artists at a reception at Honolulu Hale on August 22, beginning at 4:30 p.m.


Mayor Hannemann said, “The City and County of Honolulu is currently the only organization in the state of Hawaii to participate in The National Arts Program.  Now in its third year, the program is among the many ways the City is reaching out to perpetuate and facilitate the creative endeavors of the people of Honolulu.  Thank you to all who took the time to bring out the artist within by creating and sharing their works for our enjoyment.”


            The program was established in 1983 by The National Arts Program Foundation to identify the artistic talents of our nation.  The program involves employees and family members of municipal and county governments and businesses, and is gradually expanding to include the general public.  It currently reaches more than 450 cities and communities in 43 states and the District of Columbia, a total of 45 million people, in 83 annual venues.


Exhibit hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Exhibit viewing is free and open to the public. For more information, call 768-6622 or visit
