Just today I noticed this five-panel piece on Japanese-American history. Artist Aki Sogabe, a paper cutter, has created a moving and very beautiful work, and I’m surprised it’s escaped my notice until now. Two explanatory panels begin and end the installation:
In 1941 approximately two-thirds of the farmers’ stalls in the Pike Place Market were occupied by Japanese Americans.
Song of Memory
The United States executive order 9066 forever changed the Pike Place Market and the lives and families of 120,000 people of the United States of America.
