The CALS Butler Center will display The American Dream Deferred: Japanese American Incarceration in WWII Arkansas until June 24.
The exhibit is comprised of art created by people held at the Rohwer and Jerome “relocation centers” located in Arkansas during World War II. The collection was donated by Rosalie Gould, who received the works after Mabel Vogel, art teacher in the camps, died.
“We are deeply honored that Mrs. Gould has chosen to place the documents and the art with us and look forward to sharing them with the people of Arkansas,” said David Stricklin, director of the Butler Center.
