Opening Reception: “The Art of Gaman”
January 29, 2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Mincberg Gallery
In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans in the United States, including men, women, children, the elderly and the infirm, for the duration of World War II. The evacuation affected the entire Japanese American population on the U.S. West Coast. Allowed only what they could carry, they were given just a few days to settle their affairs and report to assembly centers. Businesses were lost, personal property was stolen or vandalized and lives were shattered. Imprisoned in remote camps surrounded by barbed wire and guarded by soldiers with machine guns, the internees sought solace in art. Their artistic creations – a celebration of the nobility of the human spirit in adversity – are the focus of this new exhibit, “The Art of Gaman,” opening Jan. 30, 2015, and on view through Sept. 20, 2015. HMH members are invited to a free preview reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015. To renew a membership or to join and attend, visit www.hmh.org, e-mail membership@hmh.org or call 713-527-1640.
