ImageImageExecutive Order 9066 opened on February 7 at the Arkansas Art Center in Little Rock.
The choice of Arkansas as an exhibition venue was supremely important to me because there were two internment camps in the state (Rohwer and Jerome), just within 100 miles of Little Rock.
I was awestruck by Brian Lang’s artful installation of the exhibition: the red walls referred to red inks of the tags, and the lighting and distribution of the tag groupings worked beautifully in their space.  Most importantly, this exhibition marks the very first time that Executive Order 9066 has been shown together in its entirety.   ImageImageImageImageImage
Attendees of this exhibition will be in for a real treat:  the Arts Center has collaborated with the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies and the Arkansas Center for History and Culture to organize Relics of Rohwer: Gaman and the Art of Perseverance, a related exhibition documenting the experiences and artwork of Japanese Americans at Rohwer, one of two internment camps located in Arkansas.
The fabulous artwork is on loan from the Mabel Rose Jamison Vogel/Rosalie Santine Gould Collection, Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, Central Arkansas Library System.
