The Art of Gaman
November 2, 2006 – February 25, 2007

Based on the book The Art of Gaman (Ten Speed Press) by Delphine Hirasuna, this exhibition features arts and crafts—both decorative and essential—made by Japanese Americans incarcerated in U.S. internment camps during World War II. Most of the items are on loan from former internees and their families and are being shown in public for the first time. The craftsmanship and originality of the internees’ work make the show an inspirational experience. Poignant to view, the objects aptly capture the essence of gaman, which means “to endure the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity.”
