Children’s Courtyard

“We decided to honor our twins (Ryan and Courtney) with engravings in the Children’s Courtyard because it was a gift that my parents did for me. Since I’m a Courtyard Kid, I wanted the same for my twins.”

—Lori Kaneko-Su, 1999 Courtyard Kid

Children's Courtyard engravings

The Children’s Courtyard is a permanent installation of individual names of children 21 years and younger. Names are inscribed on stone pavers (one name per line in columns) in the Children’s Courtyard at the entrance to the Museum Pavilion. Placement of each name is determined by the date received.
