Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii

Marking the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the forced removal and internment of Japanese-American citizens during World War II, this showing of more than 70 paintings and drawings by Takuichi Fujii—who was imprisoned with his family for nearly four years at camps in Puyallup and Minidoka, Idaho—chronicles the harsh conditions and daily routine of his incarceration. A digital version of the artist’s 400-page illustrated diary further illuminates his experience, one that eerily echoes today.
