In conjunction with Chiura Obata: American Modern, Crawford Alexander Mann III, SAAM’s curator of prints and drawings, and Noriko Sanefuji, historian and curator at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, discuss Obata’s firsthand experience and painted record of Japanese American incarceration during World War II. Between 1942 and 1943, Obata created over one hundred drawings and paintings detailing his family’s forced removal from their home in California to a camp in Utah.
