Members' Preview and Opening Reception for Roger Shimomura: Minidoka on My Mind

April 5, 2013
6 -8 pm

Roger Shimoura: Minidoka on My Mind brings together Shimomura’s extraordinary paintings and lithographs that illustrate his family’s experiences, while incarcerated at Camp Minidoka during World War II. His provocative works combine an American Pop Art sensibility with a derivation of Japanese ukiyo-e prints. 

Shimomura's works are in the permanent collection of over 80 museums nationwide. His personal papers and letters are being collected by the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C.

Don't miss this opportunity to meet Roger Shimomura, who will be visiting Sonoma from his home in Lawrence, Kansas, on the occasion of this very exciting exhibition.
