A video series, “Art at the Capitol 2011: What’s on your wall?”, launched yesterday on the Art at the Capitol YouTube and Facebook accounts. It will preview some of the pieces of art in the offices of lawmakers each day leading up to the day of the big event, Art at the Capitol 2011 on April 1, 2011, 5-7 p.m. (yes, April Fool's Day! But, no, it's not a joke!).
This year’s Art at the Capitol theme is “State of the Art” and will feature renowned local artist Doug Young, who designed the Kapolei Court Complex’s five multistory art glass windows inspired by area ocean wave patterns. The theme is a play on the “State of the State” and a nod to the State Foundation of Culture and the Arts’ (SFCA) success in bringing art, culture and history to our visual surroundings and establishing programs that highlight local artists.
The YouTube link to the video series is http://www.youtube.com/artatthecapitolhi, and the Facebook page can be found by searching “Art at the Capitol” in the Facebook search bar. Make sure you log on to Facebook and like "Art at the Capitol"!
