ARTafterDark / A membership to the Honolulu Academy of the Arts is the artistically perfect gift for that renaissance soul. With its rustic architecture, the museum is an entirely serene place to experience an international, culturally enriching experience…especially for the hyperactive keiki who finds the basic “observation” of art unengaging and a complete drag. The Academy can be a blast! Craving a party atmosphere? A membership provides free admission to the ARTafterDark series, a monthly event promoting the arts via music, fashion and more. The Academy also hosts the annual Starlight Ball, which last year was sponsored by the famed fashion label Prada. But for parent-approved fun, a membership also provides admission and a 10 percent discount at the museum’s scrumptious, island-influenced café.
