The Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts installed Governor Linda Lingle’s official portrait in the Executive Chambers at the Hawai‘i State Capitol.  Governor Lingle’s portrait hangs on the mauka wall of the Ceremony Room, alongside Governor John Burns and Governor George Ariyoshi.  The SFCA will affix an engraved nameplate on the frame in the coming weeks.

The portrait of Governor Lingle standing in the garden at Washington Place was painted by local artist Christy Fujii.  The oil on canvas portrait was painted over a seven week span from a digital photograph of Governor Lingle that was taken by local photographer Ric Noyle.  The State Foundation on Culture and the Arts budgeted $35,000 for the portrait.  The final cost for the photo, portrait and framing came in under budget at $16,350.
