Location: Asian Art Museum Samsung Hall, (2nd Floor)

There will be opportunities to share stories, memories, reflect on our collective disability history, and the work we have done together and will continue to do. We welcome your participation in the gathering.  If you would like to be part of the program and share personal memories, or reflections on our collective work and disability history, or if you have photos that you would like included in a slide show, please email the Mayor’s Office on Disability at mod@sfgov.org .

Additionally, please contact us if you would like to assist in planning or contributing to the reception.

The family will be accepting donations in Joanna’s memory to a neurology clinic with which Joanna was connected.  More details to follow closer to the gathering date.

A Note About Flowers

The Asian Art Museum has graciously donated their Hall for the gathering.  However, because the museum also is the home to rare fine art collections, all flowers and living things need to be screened with specialized equipment 24 hours in advance of any event and are not permitted into the building without this pre-screening.  So, in lieu of flowers, and in deference to those with fragrance sensitivity, please consider other non-botanical ways to contribute to the celebration.

Check-In

Guests will check-in at the front desk to get their free admission for the memorial.

Accessibility

The Asian Art Museum is accessible to people with disabilities. All entrances are wheelchair accessible and all levels of the museum are accessible by elevator. Wheelchairs may be borrowed at coat check free of charge.  Restrooms on the 2nd floor are currently under construction; however, accessible restrooms are available on the main floor.

A white zone for visitor drop-off/pick-up is located on Larkin Street in front of the museum entrance. Accessible parking spaces can be found along Fulton and Larkin Streets. The Asian Art Museum is located near the Civic Center BART station.

Sign Language Interpretation, Real-time Captioning and Assistive Listening Devices will be provided at the event. If you require additional accommodations, please let the Mayor’s Office on Disability know as soon as possible, to help ensure availability.

We look forward to seeing you there!
