Featuring:

OREGONíS NIKKEI: AN AMERICAN STORY OF RESILIENCE
THE CALVIN & MAYO TANABE GALLERY

Our permanent exhibition is a story of discrimination, resilience, and identity. This exhibit explores the history of Japanese Americans in Oregon from early immigration, to the abrupt uprooting and incarceration during World War II, and finally as citizens playing vital roles in todayís Oregon.
 

with:

Grace, Grit and Gaman:
Japanese American Women through the Generations
On display through 2021

Grace Grit and Gaman 

Curated by Marsha Matthews and Linda Tamura, this new exhibition shares the rarely revealed story of the grace, grit, and gaman (perseverance) displayed by Japanese American women. Visitors will gain a view of multiple generations of Japanese American women and the unique challenges they have faced—in their own ways, on their own terms, and in their own times.
