Martin Luther King Day
Event Image Exhibition | "Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper" | Nov. 8 - Feb. 1 (Multi-Day Event)
End Time 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Throughout his long and distinguished career, Seattle native and Lawrence, Kansas-based artist Roger Shimomura has made prints in a style inspired by his childhood interest in comic books and the traditions of American pop art and Japanese woodcut prints. Born in 1939, Shimomura spent part of his childhood, during WWII, in an internment camp in Idaho and his subsequent work as an artist explores the unique position of being seen as an outsider in one's own country.

Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper has been organized by Director John Olbrantz to complement Roger Shimomura: An American Knockoff, which opens January 17, 2015, in the Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery. 

Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper
 features 29 prints drawn from local and regional collections, including works from his Minidoka Snapshots and Mistaken Identity series, both of which deal with internment camp issues.

Barbara Roberts: “Finding a Place - The Trials and Triumphs of the Displaced"
6:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Barbara Roberts, Oregon's only female governor, will speak about topics of isolation, challenges, and opportunities facing some of Oregon's communities. Like her most recent book, "Up the Capitol Steps - A Women's March to the Governorship," Roberts will provide her views on civil and human rights issues. A nationally recognized leader on LBGT, women's, and diversity issues, she will explore how our history and present day realities guide and tie us to modern day civil rights movements. Barbara Roberts was Oregon's only woman Governor (1991-1995) and Oregon Secretary of State from 1985 to 1991. Roberts was the Director of the State and Local Executive Programs at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and has held a Senior Fellowship at the Harvard Women and Public Policy Program. Prior to her retirement in 2005, she served for five years as Associate Director of Leadership at Portland State University's Hatfield School of Government. In commenting about the Governor's autobiography, Ellen Malcolm, Founder of Emily's List states, "Roberts shows what it takes to make history—the guts to challenge the past and the passion to make a difference. Her book clearly shows why Barbara Roberts is a winner."
