Other People's Art - Shadows of Minidoka
Last Saturday, I went with my friend James to the Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, Kansas, to see the show Shadows of Minidoka, which ended that day. The show chronicled the art of Roger Shimomura and there were quite a few interesting pieces there. I enjoyed the tube color style of the artist.
Most of the subject matter addressed the life of the Japanese American growing up in the WWII camps. Many objects from the artist's childhood were also on display, including old photos, books, and small memorabilia.
This piece is entitled Block Dance.
