 WENDY MARUYAMA: EXECUTIVE ORDER 9066

Wendy Maruyama

This traveling exhibition, organized by The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston, Massachusetts, has also been shown at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, California. Wendy Maruyama is a renowned artist/furniture maker, and long-time instructor at Haystack. In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing the internment of tens of thousands of American citizens and resident aliens of Japanese ancestry. Wendy Maruyama, a third-generation Japanese-American, has created a compelling body of work to examine this period in American history, in three integrated parts: The Tag Project, Executive Order 9066, and a selection of historical artifacts. Underwriting support for Wendy Maruyama: Executive Order 9066 is provided by Betsy Rowland.
