Lily Havey

Ms. Havey was ten when she was “relocated” with her parents and brother from her Los Angeles home to the Amache Relocation Center in Colorado after a half year at the Santa Anita Assembly Center. She will share a powerpoint presentation of her watercolors depicting her wartime experiences at these camps and read some corresponding excerpts from her work-in-progress, a creative autobiography funded in part by the Utah Arts Council and the Center for Documentary Arts of Salt Lake City. After a career as a high school teacher, Ms. Havey launched a new business in stained glass. When she discovered that works in glass could not adequately express emotions, she explored watercolors. Today her paintings include not only incarceration themes, but also encompass Japan and the Japanese people.
