Exploring Freedom with Setsuko and Simon Winchester

3/25/2017

From The Norman Rockwell Museum:

During World War II, the U.S. government opened ten concentration camps to incarcerate 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry who had been forcibly removed from the West Coast. In 2015, Setsuko Sato Winchester, a Japanese-American, former NPR journalist, and ceramicist, began a journey to visit all the remains of these camps, most of them now in desolate ruins. The artist will discuss her Yellow Bowl Project, a conceptual work focusing on this challenging aspect of American history, which is designed to inform, educate, and convey hope rather than fear. Setsuko will be joined and interviewed by her husband, Simon Winchester, a noted author and journalist whose cogent observations on historical events have been have appeared in many articles and more than a dozen non-fiction books.

The talk will be from 5:30 pm-6:30 pm. Please contact the museum in advance if you’d like to attend.
