Conversation with retired architect, Frank Haines, who leads walking tours of the Capitol district under the auspices of the AIA Hawai'i.

  

   Every year, Art at the Capitol is a night of camaraderie that revolves around works of art owned by the people of Hawai‘i.  This year, legislators will open their offices and celebrate the state capitol building itself.  HPR’sNoeTanigawa discovered the capitol is a distinctive expression of Hawai‘i’s  attributes and aspirations.

Enjoy Art at the Capitol, 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Friday, March 6.  Over 500 works will be open to view in nearly 60 offices including the Governor’s suite.  This year the event celebrates the Capitol building itself, with a kick off in Conference Room 329.
