STATE OF HAWAII
A BILL FOR AN ACT
RELATING TO ANCILLARY FACILITIES FOR THE STATE ART MUSEUM IN THE NO. 1 CAPITOL DISTRICT BUILDING.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:
SECTION 1. The purpose of this Act is to provide for and fund construction and equipment for ancillary improvements for the state art museum in the no. 1 capitol district building to provide the infrastructure for ancillary programs and visitor amenities.
The full social, educational, and economic benefits and long-term success of the state art museum are contingent upon providing ancillary facilities, programs, and amenities to attract, entertain, engage, educate, and satisfy visitors and encourage repeat visits. Three standard amenities offered nationally in capitol district government buildings, art museums, and cultural institutions are information, food, and retail services. The capitol district information kiosk would assist with wayfinding around the facilities and provide capitol district walking tour orientations, statewide arts and cultural information, brochures, and event/tour tickets. Gift shop merchandise related to the state art museum, Washington Place, the capitol tours program, and the judiciary history center will promote their missions, activities, and educational goals, and generate supplemental income for each program. The coffee shop/café will operate as a concession and benefit approximately four thousand area employees while generating funds for arts education programs.
The state's investment in the capitol district cultural infrastructure will provide educational opportunities for students and teachers, revitalize the civic and business districts, instill greater pride in Hawaii residents, build public and private collaborations, and keep Hawaii competitive in the tourism market.
SECTION 2. Section 103-8.5, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended by amending subsection (b) to read as follows:
"(b) The works of art special fund shall be used solely for the following purposes:
(1) Costs related to the acquisition of works of art, including any consultant or staff services required to carry out the art in public places and relocatable works of art programs;
(2) Site modifications, display, and interpretive work necessary for the exhibition of works of art;
(3) Upkeep services, including maintenance, repair, and restoration of works of art;
(4) Storing and transporting works of art;

(7) Costs related to plans, design, construction, and equipment for improvements for the state art museum in the no. 1 capitol district building for ancillary programs and activities of the state art museum."
SECTION 3. There is appropriated out of the works of art special fund the sum of $1 or so much thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2001-2002 for ancillary improvements for the state art museum.
The sum appropriated shall be expended by the department of accounting and general services for the purposes of this Act.

SECTION 5. This Act shall take effect upon its approval; provided that section 3 shall take effect on July 1, 2001.
