This event has ended.

Yasuo Kuniyoshi and Eitaro Ishigaki both emigrated to pre-war America and lived there during the strife-filled WWII era. Kuniyoshi skillfully incorporated messages into his paintings with abstract motifs while Ishigaki took a more direct approach. Their depictions of Japanese immigration bans, the Great Depression, and wartime American society reflect the complex emotions of living between two countries. Look back on their works to see how they confronted their eras and societies and what the legacies of their art are.
