9066: A History of Fearmongering

January 15-24, 2019

Creative Arts Center Gallery

A new student-organized museum exhibition focuses on Executive Order 9066—its entwinement with the lives of Japanese Americans, and relationship to the present day. 

In this remarkable interactive exhibition, visitors can walk through rooms furnished with 1940s-era furniture and artifacts, replicas of period pieces, and reproductions of posters, newspapers, and other documents of the era. The exhibition includes video related to the Pearl Harbor attack, and makes parallels to more recent events in history with video of the the September 11, 2001, attack and current day news footage. Visitors are invited to post comments in response to questions painted on the windows. 

"9066: A History of Fearmongering" grew out of student research in the American Studies class.

Opening ceremony Tuesday, January 15, from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. The exhibit will be on display until Thursday, January 24. All members of the Catlin Gabel community are invited to attend the opening and see the exhibition.
