Join JANM Education department in celebrating two important Japanese American artists featured in the museum’s newest exhibits A Life in Pieces: the Diary and Letters of Stanley Hayami and Miné Okubo’s Masterpiece: The Art of Citizen 13360. Both artists recorded groundbreaking chronicles of their lives in camp, shining light on the first person experiences of Japanese American incarcerees.
Teachers and educators are invited to learn and discuss innovative ways to forefront the artistic storytelling of Okubo and Hayami within the teaching of the Japanese American WWII experience. The workshop will provide an overview of both exhibitions and guidelines and techniques for interpreting the art and primary sources/artifacts with students. All attendees will receive copies of Citizen 13660 by Miné Okubo and Stanley Hayami: Nisei Son, annotated by Joanne Oppenheim.
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibitions A Life in Pieces: The Diary and Letters of Stanley Hayami and Miné Okubo’s Masterpiece: The Art of Citizen 13360.
