Presently open for viewing, "Exquisite Art Under Adverse Conditions: From The Japanese American Incarceration Camps: 1942-1945," is the extensively remodeled and enhanced section of the museum dedicated to the art and craft created by many artisans who were forcibly held in the camps during World War II. 

This major art exhibit captures the artistic essence of the forced mass removal and incarceration of some 120,000 people of Japanese descent from 1942 through 1945. Using natural material from the 10 desolate incarceration camps, the art work comes alive in a very naturalistic way reflecting the Art of Gaman, to endure the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity. 

Thursdays - Sundays  12:00pm - 4:00pm

We hope you will be able to stop by and visit the museum.
