About the Works of Art in Public Spaces Collection
The Works of Art in Public Spaces at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (WAPS) include paintings, sculpture, murals, installations, and elements of the designed environment which enhance the cultural and aesthetic experience of the campus and provide a valuable resource for research and scholarship, exhibition, and educational purposes shared by the academic and cultural communities it serves.
The WAPS is a comprehensive, integrated, and well maintained blend of art from the UHM Campus Art Collection (CAC) and the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (HSFCA) Art in Public Places. CAC works of art are legally owned by UHM through gift, purchase, commission or approved temporary installation, whereas HSFCA works of art include commissioned or portable works of art owned and maintained by the HSFCA.
