An American Diary, A Lecture by Roger Shimomura
Roger Shimomura will present An American Diary, a 60-minute lecture on his work spanning over 40 years. Shimomura's paintings, prints and theatre pieces address sociopolitical issues of Asian America. Learn how his work has been propelled by various historical and political events, as well as his own physical environment which has been constantly filled with his collections ranging from Walt Disney memorabilia to World War II stereotypes of Asian people.
