“Then They Came for Me”
Alphawood Gallery
Chicago, IL

This 10,000 square foot exhibition examined a difficult and painful episode in the history of the United States when the federal government forcibly removed and imprisoned thousands of American citizens without due process simply for being born Japanese American.  Most of the exhibit consisted of photographs by noted American photographers, including Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange, as well as artwork and artifacts from the community.
