'Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs Of Ansel Adams' & 'Wendy Maruyama: Executive Order 9066'

The Center Museum is pleased to announce two winter exhibitions: "Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams" and "Wendy Maruyama: Executive Order 9066" opening on Jan. 12.

About "Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams":

An intimate look through the lens of celebrated photographer, Ansel Adams, at daily life in Manzanar, one of 10 Japanese-American incarceration camps in the U.S. during World War II. His work in Manzanar is a departure from his signature style of landscape photography, providing a glimpse into the lives of the thousands of Japanese-Americans that were interned during one of the darkest moments in U.S. history.

About "Wendy Maruyama: Executive Order 9066":

Wendy Maruyama’s work analyzes the internment camps with a contemporary eye. As a Japanese-American artist, she explores family history and identity through her sculptural work. Executive Order 9066 involves a series of wall-mounted cabinets referencing themes from the internment camps. Also featured are sculptures from Maruyama’s The Tag Project, consisting of nearly 120,000 replicas of the paper identification tags that internees were forced to wear.
