American Tapestry 25 Stories From the Collection
Another JANM (Japanese American National Museum) Post? Yes, but it's not about Zen Garage. It's American Tapestry. Don't let the name fool you, it's not about fabric, it's about stories by Japanese Americans during World War 2's Concentration Camps. Now you might be thinking, oh no, another one of these shows? I swear this one is different. It's about artifacts and their stories that make up a part of America. The cool thing is it's not just about camps, but it's about the human element, the little things that you forget about – the single stories that can encapsulate a feeling or mood of an entire era. There are those stories in this show. It's actually a great and fresh way to see the often tired subject of Concentration Camps.
