The Hawaii State Art Museum (HISAM) and the Art in Public Places (APP) Collection program is seeking a Hawaii-based company to provide marketing coordination services. This is a great opportunity for a creative small marketing company to build recognition as a public agency contractor.

The awarded company will oversee and develop marketing campaigns that target Hawaii State Art Museum visitors, social media followers, the Hawaii Arts Community and fellow creatives. As part of the contract, requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • Conduct research and analyze data to identify and define audiences
  • Plan advertising and promotional campaigns for products or services (media include local publications, newspapers, television, radio, news outlets, social media, etc.)
  • Liaise with event managers and vendors to promote success of activities and enhance the museum’s presence
  • Maintain websites and analyze data performance metrics
  • Conduct market research to identify opportunities for promotion and growth

As a creative company, there’s no lack of inspiration while contracting with HISAM. Known within the state as “the people’s museum“, the public can visit the downtown Honolulu galleries for free. Furthermore, in 1967, Hawaii became the first state in the nation to adopt a percent-for-art law. Meaning, 1% of new building construction costs are designated for the acquisition of works of art. All art received from this law is part of the APP Collection.
