‘Art Behind Barbed Wire’ at Nikkei Museum
A Pacific Northwest Exploration of Japanese-American arts and crafts created in World War II internment camps is being featured at the Northwest Nikkei Museum, at the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington, in Seattle’s International District.
In recognition of the 70th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, the Northwest Nikkei Museum presents an exhibition of art and objects created by Japanese-Americans at the internment camps.
The exhibit features works collected from community members, providing a local perspective on the craftsmanship, resourcefulness, and creativity that persisted during camp.
The organization just celebrated its 100th anniversary on March 17 and 18 with the completion of a renovation to their historic buildings in Seattle’s International District at 1414 S. Weller Street. For more information, go to jcccw.org.
