Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West presents Behind Barbed Wire: The Art and Culture of the Internment Camps. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, enabling the Secretary of War and Military Commanders to designate and restrict access to military areas, effectively authorizing the removal of more than 110,000 Japanese Americans living on the West Coast to a series of remote War Relocation Centers.
Betsy Fahlman, author and Professor of Art History at Arizona State University, examines the art and culture of the camps through the photographs of Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee and Ansel Adams. This program is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18th at 11:00 a.m. For full details, contact Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West.
