History: While they were both in the cabinet, under King Kamehameha V, American politicians John Mott-Smith and Charles Coffin Harris convinced the legislature to fund a hotel. It first opened in 1872. The hotel was converted to a YMCA in 1917 and used by the military in World War I. In 1926 the termite-infested building was finally torn down, and a new one designed in Spanish mission style by Lincoln Rogers of the firm Emory & Webb.

The Hawai‘i State Art Museum is dedicated to presenting the largest and finest collection of work by Hawaii artists. The museum honors and inspires artistic excellence and promotes education andcultural enrichment.The Hawai‘i State Art Museum marks a milestone for the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (SFCA) and the fulfillment of a 35-year dream for a principal venue where the public can view a large selection from the SFCA’s Art in Public Places Collection.In 1968, Hawai‘i leaders and civic planners recognized the Capital District’s unique value as the seat of Hawai‘i government, its architectural dignity and beauty, and its rich history and culture.They recommended the acquisition of the historic, Spanish-Mission style YMCA building for a gallery, restaurant,government offices and as a focal point for cultural activities.The State of Hawai‘i acquired the building in December 2000 and dedicated the second floor with its grand lobby, high ceilings, and architectural accents for the Hawai‘i State Art Museum. Renovations began in November 2001 and the museum opened to the public on November 3, 2002

The Hawaiʻi State Art Museum is operated by the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and is located on the second floor of the building. Admission is free at all times. The museum consists of three galleries. In addition to changing temporary exhibitions, there is a permanent display of Hawaiian art. It reflects a mix of Hawaii's ethnic and cultural traditions through 132 works of art by 105 artists. In a wide variety of artistic styles, movements, and media, the exhibition illustrates the varied cultural influences that fuel the creativity of Hawaii's artists.
