Join Dr. ShiPu Wang , curator of Pictures of Belonging: Miki Hayakawa, Hisako Hibi, and Miné Okubo ; the Coats Family Chair in the Arts and Professor of Art History at the University of California, Merced; and commissioner of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery for the launch of the new catalog, which accompanies the forthcoming nationally touring exhibition organized by JANM.

The exhibition and catalog reveal a broader picture of the American experience by presenting artworks and life stories of three trailblazing Japanese American women of the pre–World War II generation that will be in dialogue with each other for the first time. Spanning eight decades with seventy paintings and drawings and four sketchbooks by Miki Hayakawa, Hisako Hibi, and Miné Okubo, the exhibition reveals the range and depth of these artists’ oeuvres and connections that have not been explored previously.

The JANM Book Club is a series of Public Programs that highlights new publications by Japanese Americans or related to Japanese American history and culture.

Sunday, November 26 is Museum Store Sunday ! Visit the JANM Store in person or online that day for special deals and opportunities!
