Never Again is Now
Seventy-six years ago, Japanese Americans were subjected to family separation and detention. 120,000 were unlawfully imprisoned in concentration camps across the country. We swore we would never again let this happen to any other group.Yet today we watch as immigrant children and families are being separated and detained and civil liberties are being revoked. Now more than ever, we must work together to make “Never Again” a reality. In this moment for big statements of resistance, I used an artist residency from Densho to create this 11′ tall wheat paste mural. Original photo by Dorothea Lange, WRA. See the time-lapse of the installation here.
