California Museum presents:


Uprooted! Japanese Americans During World War II


The California Museum’s longest running exhibit surveys a century of Japanese American history in California through the personal stories of formerly incarcerated Californians.


Although Japanese immigrants and their American-born children established businesses, built thriving communities and contributed to the state’s prosperity, they began to face hostility and discrimination following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Sacramento Japanese Film Festival in partnership with

Verge Center for the Arts proudly present:


Kusama - Infinity:  The Life and Art of Yayoi Kusama

Thursday, January 17, 2019

7:30 PM

Verge Center for the Arts

625 S Street, Sacramento, CA


Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame impossible odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from both her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her: the trauma of growing up in Japan during World War II, life in a dysfunctional family that discouraged her creative ambitions, sexism and racism in the art establishment, mental illness in a culture where that was particularly shameful and even continuing to pursue and be devoted to her art full time on the cusp of her 90s. In spite of it all, Kusama has endured and has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry and literary fiction. After working as an artist for over six decades, people around the globe are experiencing her installation Infinity Mirrored Rooms in record numbers, as Kusama continues to create new work every day.
