Japanese Cherry Blossom Events Are Coming! See Cherry Blossom Events
In commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the National Japanese American Historical Society presents Artists' Eyes of Incarceration. During World War II, Executive Order 9066 led to registration, exclusion, forced removal and mass incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast. Two multigenerational art exhibits reveal a successful unearthing of evocative expressions through three generations. Works by Japanese American and other multicultural artists expose the profound and eventual reclamation of history and identity. Works and artists talks make connections to the current climate today.
The exhibits, hosted at NJAH's two sites at the Presidio and Japantown, are curated by Betty Boue Kano and Judy Shintani.
