"Wendy Maruyama: The Tag Project / Executive Order 9066" - February 6 - May 3, 2012
"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.
