[Non-CAS Event] Dr. Johns' illustrated talk will introduce and explore the work of Kenjiro Nomura, Kamekichi Tokita and Takuichi Fujii, well established modernist painters in the Pacific Northwest prior to World War II. They were forcibly removed along with others of Japanese descent, to the Minidoka Relocation Center in Idaho. Each left a record of his experience but until recently, their stories have been largely unknown, their names forgotten, and their accomplishments overlooked.
The work of Dr. Johns has helped situate the significance of these artists within the context of American history before, during and after WWII.
