The Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame, was founded in 1994 in the State of Hawai'i, as a nonprofit educational corporation, federally tax-exempt under IRS code 501(c)(3).
The 1998 Hall of Fame exhibit, is funded with grants from the Cooke Foundation, Ltd., and the Atherton Family Foundation. Martin & MacArthur built our koa exhibits in collaboration with their designer, Richard Towill. The display panels are designed and produced by Robyn Buntin Galleries.
We also wish to thank Bishop Museum, the Hawai'i State Archives, and all the families of our Hall of Fame Honorees for supplying biographical material and photographs for our exhibits.
