Program Description: Seattle art historian

focuses on this Japanese American modernist artist who lived in Seattle in the 1940s and was later
incarcerated during World War II, first in the Puyallup state fairgrounds, and
then in a permanent camp in Minidoka, Idaho. This lecture complements the current Museum exhibit “Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii”, which Dr. Johns served as exhibit curator, and from which she will also be discussing during her talk.
