Saturdays With MAM November 2020

November 21

A monthly bundle of new activities to explore and experience the museum from home! Includes an art-making activity and a new Embodied Engagement video. In November, the focus exhibition will be Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii.  This powerful show features a comprehensive visual record of Takuichi Fujii ((1891–1964), a Japanese man forcibly incarcerated during World War II at the Minidoka Relocation Center in southern Idaho.
