The Art of Gaman:

Arts and Crafts from the Japanese American Internment Camps, 1942-1946

This landmark exhibition showcases arts and crafts made by Japanese Americans in U.S. internment camps during World War II.

These incredibly crafted objects are physical manifestations of the art of gaman, a Japanese word that means to endure the seemingly unbearable with dignity and patience, and a testimony to the unbreakable spirit of this stalwart community.
