August 6 was a special night at the Academy—about 300 people who care about supporting arts education (and good wine and food) turned out. Thanks so much if you were one of them.

Many other thanks are due…to the Johnson Brothers and the 30 vintners they represent, 12th Avenue Grill+Salt, Town, Chef Kathi, Duke’s Waikiki+Hula Grill, OnoPops, Romano’s Macaroni Grill, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and Whole Foods; all of our volunteers; Drawn Out organizer Waileia Roster and the generous artists who made Drawn Out such a great art event—Joey Chiarello, Kahi Ching, Solomon Enos, Brady Evans, Sally French, Vince Hazen, Gemma Hazen, Ryan Higa, Byron Inouye, May Izumi, Corinne Kamiya, Kloe Kang, Jon J. Murakami, Deb Nehmad, Carol Pao, Margo Ray, Melissa Rivera, Cade Roster, Masako Schwalbenitz, David Tanji, David Thorne, Maika‘i Tubbs, Mike Watanabe, Atsumi Yamamoto, Scott Yoell.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s a novel worth of shots from August Moon, taken by our staff photographer Shuzo Uemoto. Enjoy!
