August Moon 2015

August Moon, the Honolulu Museum of Art's summer wine and food event, features wines from more than 30 winemakers from around the world, food from some of O‘ahu’s most interesting chefs and restaurants, and Drawn Out—a chance to purchase original art by Hawai‘i’s favorite artists.

Proceeds from August Moon make it possible for the museum to feature world-class exhibitions, offer innovative arts education programs, and ensure that the museum is accessible to everyone.

We’re grateful to our generous sponsors who help make this possible. For information about August Moon sponsorship please contact our Corporate Relations office at 808.532.8785 or email
