In conjunction with the exhibition “Instructions to All Persons: Reflections on Executive Order 9066,” JANM presents “Moving Day,” an outdoor public art installation. Each night through August 11, from sunset to midnight, “Moving Day” presents outdoor projections of Civilian Exclusion Order posters, which were issued during World War II to inform persons of Japanese ancestry of their impending forced removal and incarceration.
From 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., join us for the 3rd in a special series of public programs. The focus of the program will be allyship between Muslim Americans and Japanese Americans, two immigrant communities who have faced and now face similar struggles. Join artists and activists Kathy Masaoka, Sahar Pirzada, Taz Ahmed, traci ishigo, and traci kato-kiriyama for a riveting hour of performance, poetry, and audience discussion. We will consider the critical role that art and storytelling play in the work of building community while involving the audience in the creative process.
