    Sandra Honda

    Date July 29, 2022 2:00pm Pricing FREE

    Artists Sandra Honda creates artwork of personal and cultural histories of incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. Extensively reading and researching, Honda discovered the novel, When the Emperor Was Divine by author Julie Otsuka. Otsuka takes readers into the lives of Japanese Americans incarcerated in “relocation centers”. Located in desolate, deserted areas far from their homes, Otsuka asks why and how families got moved to these “camps” and describes what life was like behind barbed wire. The artist will discuss her artwork in the context of this novel, as well as relate her work and the novel to her own family’s incarceration experiences.

     FREE and open to the public. Please RSVP at gallery@thereser.org
