At Home in Alexandria (AHA) Village is sponsoring this event.
Volunteer docent Lee Ann Lawch returns to help us explore artwork from the SAAM collection. In 1942, amidst WWII fear, Executive Order 9066 went into effect incarcerating more than 100,000 West Coast Japanese Americans. Although Japanese Americans farther east were not incarcerated, their movement and possessions were restricted and activities monitored. We examine how Japanese American artists persisted during those troubling times.
Non-members of AHA are welcome to attend this Zoom by contacting the AHA office at (703) 231-0824 to RSVP. Please register on the Cheverly Village Events List as well.
