“I can’t express enough the gratitude and appreciation all of us at the museum have for this wonderful family,” said Museum Director Sean O’Harrow. “Indru has tirelessly served for 33 years as a trustee helping us collect, preserve and present outstanding art. Gulab has similarly provided endless support to the museum’s efforts to showcase art in Hawai‘i. Together, they are outstanding examples of generosity and community support.”
