Join artist, Wendy Maruyama for a lecture of her exhibition "The Tag Project" on April 16, 2012 at 7:00pm at building Art North room 412.

The exhibition, "The Tag Project," will be hosted at the University Art Gallery located on the San Diego State University campus from February 6, 2012 to May 3, 2012. Gallery hours, Monday through Thursday and Saturday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.

"The Tag Project" uses art as an education tool to tell the story of Japanese Americans sent to internment camps during World War II. The exhibition recreates all 120,000 tags worn by internees as a way to convey the impact of Executive Order 9066, which forced Japanese Americans on the West Coast to be relocated to 10 internment camps.
