August Moon: a wine + food event for art education

Date:

August 01, 2014 06:00pm-09:00pm

Location:

Honolulu Museum of Art


Event Information:

August Moon, our wine & food summer benefit 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.
