On October 21, 2019, the world lost an incredible & unique artist who lived a courageous life driven to create and live by her own rules.  And at the same time, she was a sister who never said “no” when a friend or the world came asking for help.  Please join me, her family, and friends for an evening to commune and remember Haruko and share her hope and inspiration and how she touched each of our lives.

Hosted by Asher Hartman, Tuni Chatterji, & Kevin McCarty with a special performance by the Reader’s Chorus, & screenings of Haruko‘s early films. Artist Kate Brown is collecting photos and ephemera from friends and family digitally to create a zine to preserve Haruko‘s memory.  Please email Kate Brown with your contributions.  A recording booth will be available for anyone to share their memories about Haruko, which will be shared with family and friends and preserved on This night is all about sharing. After the short program, the night is created for everyone to be with one another, sharing their stories, laughing, and loving. Please consider bringing a snack and beverage to contribute. This memorial is open to the public. Please spread the word.
