The urge to make art persists even during inhumane persecution.  Art made in such harsh circumstances vividly displays the depth and resilience of human creativity. Art Historian and CANDLES' Program Director Amy Guess will host a discussion on art created by Japanese-Americans while held captive in internment camps during World War II and how, through art, music and performance, they continued their traditions of creativity and recorded their lives both before and during internment.
