Since 2005, Kitagaki has mirrored historic images of Japanese Americans taken in 1942 by War Relocation Authority staff including Dorothea Lange and Tom Parker with his own contemporary photographs of the same individuals. His work, as featured in “Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit,’ documents his subjects’ legacy of strength and perseverance over their internment during WWII.
Presented in partnership with The Sacramento Bee, event tickets include entry to presentation plus admission to the Museum’s current exhibits and parking in the surface street lot at 10th & O Streets. Proceeds benefit the Museum’s National Parks Services grant to fund updates to the permanent exhibit, “Uprooted! Japanese Americans During WWII.”
Advance tickets on sale beginning at 10:00 am on February 19, 2015 using the online form below. Or download a printable order form to purchase tickets by mail.
