Dear Fred Ho: Thank you for rocking our world

by Scott Lozier

A week ago today, Fred Ho received the Harvard Arts Medal. First he told his story in words. Then he told it again in music when he picked up his sax and played some of the sweetest sounds ever heard. We were on the edge of our seats. Thank you for your art, Mr. Ho, and for inspiring us to think more deeply about living life joyfully, naturally, creatively and occasionally wearing green body paint. A week later and for all time, we carry your beat in our hearts.If you missed the Harvard Arts Medal event, you can still watch this short OFA video, a collage of Fred Ho images and music (which he provided).
