Make Way for Art Affair!

With only two weeks until our biggest event of the year, the Hui is simply buzzing with artistic energy, anticipation and excitement as we prepare for Art Affair 2010: The Bourbon Street Ball!

This valued and festive tradition brings together a strong community of artists, educators, collectors, and more to help raise funds for the art and outreach programs of Hui No`eau - Maui's premiere visual arts education center.

Featuring live Dixieland Jazz by Raw Silk, featuring Kelly Covington and Fulton Tashombe, delectable Cajun dinner and treats by Bev Gannon's Celebrations Catering, live auction of the best in fine art Maui has to offer led by the acclaimed Kip Toner, a silent auction that includes getaways, entertainment and more, this year's Art Affair promises to be an event to talk about for years to come. John W. Hoxie, Jr. will be presented with the Board of Directors Recognition Award for his unrelenting support of Hui No‘eau. George Allan will be presented with the Hui Angel Award for his many years of inspiration. Additionally, the New Orleans-based nonprofit Young Aspirations/ Young Artists (YA/YA) will receive a portion of the event's proceeds in the spirit of this year's theme.

“We're thrilled by the Hui's decision to support YA/YA in this way!” says YA/YA Executive Director Baty Landis, “This contribution will enable 40 New Orleans public school students access to the arts, 6 developing artists a fulfilling collaboration experience, and 4 classroom teachers tools to successfully integrate the visual arts into their regular curriculum through our Urban Heroes program.”

Seating is limited for this extravagant event, held at the historic Kaluanui estate in beautiful Upcountry Maui. Call the Hui today at 572-6560 or visit us at to purchase your tickets!
