Art, Identity, and Community

"Portrait of Tom Kobayashi at Manzanar", Ansel Adams (1943)

Sat, September 23, 2017

2 - 4 pm

Please join Steve Ozone, Wing Young Huie, John Matsunaga, and Leslie Barlow in a discussion moderated by Kerry Morgan where they will talk about their artistic work that focuses on the histories, identities, and experiences of the communities to which they belong. These artists engage with the lived experiences of these communities, especially in regards to marginalization, invisibility, stereotyping, racism, and historical trauma.

This program is associated with the photography exhibit Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit: Japanese American WWII Incarceration, Then and Now, by Paul Kitagaki Jr. currently on view at the Historic Fort Snelling visitor center.

FREE admission

Co-sponored by Historic Fort Snelling and the Twin Cities Chapter JACL with the support of the National Park Service, Tanforan Assembly Center Memorial Committee, Contra Costa Japanese American Citizens League, Asian Pacific Endowment of the Saint Paul Foundation, Twin Cities Japanese American Citizens League (including the Leslie and Karen Suzukamo, Donald S. Maeda, and Helen Tsuchiya Funds), and the Joseph and Marie Winter Family Fund for Historic Fort Snelling.
