TAM: Roger Shimomura in conversation
I thought you would want to know that Roger Shimomura will be in Seattle this summer for a book-signing and conversation with art historian Emily Stamey to celebrate his new book.
You should know Roger Shimomura because of his Minidoka No. 5 (442nd) painting in Telling Stories.

ROGER SHIMOMURA with EMILY STAMEY
Friday, July 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Co-presented with the UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS. We're honored to present a special conversation between esteemed artist Roger Shimomura and art historian Emily Stamey, here in celebration of The Prints of Roger Shimomura (Spencer Museum of Art/University of Washington Press). A Seattle native whose ukiyoe and Pop Art-influenced work can be viewed at McCaw Hall, the Metro tunnel (when it reopens), the Denver Art Museum, and the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art, Roger Shimomura is particularly known for his work on the themes of the dualities of Japanese American identity, on his family's experiences of the World War II internment, and on stereotypes. His work is represented locally by our neighbor, the Greg Kucera Gallery. For more about Roger Shimomura and his work, please see www.gregkucera.com and www.rshim.com.
Hope to see you there!
