Reconstructing Memories: An Art Workshop with Mike Saijo
In conjunction with Instructions to All Persons, exhibiting artist Mike Saijo will lead this daylong drop-in workshop exploring our connections to history and current events. Photographs of participants will be printed onto pages that they choose from local newspapers and then mounted on wood panels for them to take home.
Guests may come and go as they please, but limit is 16 at any given time. No reservations necessary; first 100 people, or while supplies last. Free with museum admission. Recommended for all ages. Activity takes about an hour.
Created by Richard Allen and Eliot John Hagen and developed with the assistance of Koji Steven Sakai and Tim Southam, Nisei is a new TV pilot that follows Kenji Takagi, veteran of the WWII 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and his family after they’re released from the Tule Lake concentration camp in 1946.
Join us for a staged reading in advance of the pilot’s production. Free with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.
