Here’s more about next month’s virtual lecture:

Even with great adversity, you can’t keep the artistic, creative spirit down, but also, that creative spirit actually thrives during adversity to help people through hard times and to bring people together. This is what I show, during my 60-minute lecture based on the art that has been discovered from the time of World War II and the Japanese Internment Camps. Through a wonderful Power Point presentation, you will see many of these art pieces and the people who created them. You will see pictures of the various camps and learn what the camp life was like. The art was so varied, furniture, embroidery, crochet, knitting, quilts, wood carving, sculpture, drawings, prints, paintings, jewelry, Bonsai, Bon-kei, weaving, basketry, musical instruments, and other art forms. You will see it all and learn what happened to the art and where it is today.
