Event Image Exhibition | "Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper" | Nov. 8 - Feb. 1
10:00 AM - 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.
