Also, starting this Saturday, January 23, Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii opens at the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture. Witness to Wartime introduces artist Takuichi Fujii, who was fifty years old when war broke out between the USA and Japan. In a climate of increasing fear and racist propaganda, he became one of 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast forced to leave their homes and live in geographically isolated incarceration camps.

Fujii began an illustrated diary that spans the years from his forced removal in May 1942 through his internment in southern Idaho, which ended in October 1945. In nearly 250 ink drawings ranging from public to intimate views, the diary depicts detailed images of the camps, and the inmates' daily routines and pastimes. He also produced over 130 watercolors that reiterate and expand upon the diary as well as several oil paintings and sculptures. This exhibit runs through May 16, 2021. Visit northwestmuseum.org for more information.
