This piece, by Taylor Heckman, a eleventh-grader at Le Jardin Academy, is among artwork at the Capitol.

The exhibit is part of Senator Tokuda’s Art Review (STAR) Program, which was established in 2007 by state Sen. Jill Tokuda to showcase artwork by Windward Oahu students. Since its inception, the STAR Program has featured artwork by more than 1,300 Windward students.

The current display includes artistic expressions in a variety of media.

“Our teachers, in both our public and private schools, are doing an amazing job of inspiring our students to express themselves through art,” Tokuda stated. “Showcasing their work is a testament to both our teachers, students and to the great things going on in our schools.”

The artwork is available for public viewing from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m.2 p.m. Saturdays through the end of the month on the Capitol’s Chamber level.
