United States

Throughout his career, Roger Shimomura (b. 1939) has been devoted to addressing- through his art--issues of his ethnic identity as a third-generation Japanese American. His paintings tackle socio-political issues of Asian America and invite audiences to question their own and society's perceptions about race and culture.

This special exhibit features Shimomura's collection of ephemera as well as volumes of stereotypical images of Asian Pacific Islander Americans produced in many media.
