August Moon

August Moon, our wine and food summer event for art education, 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 some of Hawai‘i’s most notable artists.

Proceeds from August Moon directly support the museum’s art education programs, which means you can help thousands of children access classes, activities and school tours to explore their passion for art.

Don’t wait to get tickets—last year’s event sold out early! There are 85 left as of July 22.
