The exhibition will include such important stories as the relationship between U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye and Hawaii statehood; Kazuo Masuda and Ronald Reagan; and Rudy Tokiwa and U.S. Rep. Charles Bennett. Other stories will highlight Senator Spark Matsunaga; Jim Kawaminami's Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians testimony; and the Texas Congressional Delegation, including U.S. Senators Jim Wright and Sam Rayburn. These narratives will be framed within a timeline that will help give a broader perspective of the redress movement.
Two-dimensional proposals of drawings/sketches, images, or renderings along with a brief statement (~250 words) may be submitted for consideration. Final pieces to be exhibited may be three-dimensional. Please note the physical exhibition space is limited. GFBNEC staff will work with the artists’ proposals on size restrictions on an individual basis. At the conclusion of the exhibition, all pieces will be auctioned off at the annual Evening of Aloha gala dinner. GFBNEC is offering a $500 stipend to each selected artist.
The exhibition will run from Saturday, August 4, 2018 through Sunday, September 16, 2018.
