The Honolulu Museum of Art relieves the golden age of luxury steamship travel. UPGRADE TO FIRST CLASS AT ARTafterDARK: POSH July 25.
HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—The Honolulu Museum of Art upgrades its monthly ARTafterDARK experience to first class with ARTafterDARK: Posh on July 25. Guests can relive the golden age of luxury steamship travel. The event is presented by Tori Richard, Ltd.
Passengers aboard the luxury liner S.S. ARTafterDARK will voyage to India to learn how to shake their hips with Shakti 808. Along the way, the Erin Smith Band plays its sultry rock, Roothub plays his famously breezy jams, and DJ Super CW immerse revelers in hot summer dance beats.
The grownup fun and games include exploration of the new exhibition Art Deco Hawai‘i, which provides the period inspiration for an art activity—guests can then create personalized luggage tags (for their deluxe steamer trunks). The Grove will lavish taste buds with a themed menu.
The museum invites all pips to get togged to the bricks and have a ring-a-ding-ding at the jolly up at the Honolulu Museum of Art. It’s sure to be aces!
