July 30, 2015 7:01am


Just a reminder that From Hiroshima to Hope is next week, August 6 from 6 – 9 p.m. If you haven’t been to this yearly event prepare for a powerful evening where Green Lake is transformed by floating lanterns. The event occurs every year on the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. The event also has several other events that evening, including music, a family program and more.

To commemorate From Hiroshima to Hope, artist Yoshiko Yamamoto created a limited-edition block print of the lantern-floating ceremony entitled ‚ÄúPeace Lantern,” which is also pictured above. It is available to the first 50 people who donate $100 to event through the Hiroshima to Hope site.
