Japanese American National Museum Brings Contested Histories to Seattle for 2-Day Event -- November 24th & 25th

The Japanese American National Museum (JANM) brings its pop-up display of the Allen Hendershott Eaton Collection, which was saved from the auction block in 2015 through the efforts of Japanese American community leaders and activists, to NVC Hall in Seattle. The display is free and open to the public for two days on November 24th and 25th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Titled Contested Histories: Art and Artifacts from the Allen Hendershott Eaton Collection, the display includes physical or digital representation of every item in the collection—more than 400 individual photographs, sculptures, paintings and watercolors, jewelry items, vases, beads, nameplates, and other handmade items from the WWII incarceration camps that Japanese Americans were forced to endure.

NVC Hall is located at 1212 S. King Street in Seattle. For more information, call 206.322.1212 or contact Debbie Kashino at: debbiekashino@gmail.com
