  • Life Interrupted: Interactive Art Installation and Exhibition

    Date: Friday, February 3, 2017
    Time: 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    Nancy Chikaraishi, artist and professor of architecture at Drury's Hammons School of Architecture, will be exhibiting artwork and an interactive art installation that will speak to the mass incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II. As a daughter and granddaughter of Japanese Americans who were interned in Rowher Arkansas, Nancy's work will frame a discussion on civil rights, racial justice, ethnic and religious discrimination, immigration, and xenophobia.

    This project is supported in part by awards from the Mid-America Arts Alliance, National Endowment for the Arts, Missouri Arts Council, and foundations, corporations and individuals throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas, Springfield Regional Arts Council and Community Foundation of the Ozarks, DoubleTree by Hilton, Nelson and Kelley Still Nichols, Colorgraphic Printing, Drury University, Drury University’s Hammons School of Architecture and the L.E. Meador Center for Politics and Citizenship.
