Activism and Japanese Americans? Yes it happened. Japanese American National Museum’s Drawing the Line captures this feeling in an exhibition as related to Pacific Standard Time. It’s a series and the text from the JANM site is as follows. “Drawing the Line is part of Pacific Standard Time. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.” Here’s some photos below. The first photo says it all. A jacket in the background filled with buttons, a guitar, and a photo of Nobuko Miyamoto and Chris Iijima, the subject of a Tad Nakamura film, Song for Ourselves.
Did you know a Japanese American, Larry Shinoda designed the 63 split window Corvette? The Monza and the Boss Mustangs? The version in the lobby is a specimen.
