Lets visit the Honolulu Academy of Arts Arts After Dark event. The last Friday of each month they have a different event. At this event the exhibit of Bhutanese Sacred objects are on display. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to video tape in any of the galleries. The show has monks from Bhutan who perform a cham with horns, drums and cymbals. In one gallery a monk was working on a mandalla. It was an incredible to watch the monk place grains of colored sand, a few at a time to make this beautiful pattern. In in outside area one monk was painting surfboards. Local restaurants come out and have specialty food available for sale For more information about the Honolulu Academy of Arts, goto their website at www.honoluluacademy.org
