The Art of Living: Japanese American Creative Experience at Rowher

Rowher, AR was one of the places that was designated as a Japanese Internment Camp during World War II.  The Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, part of our county public library system, has the Art of Living Exhibit on display until the end of November.  One of the parents in our homeschool group planned a field trip for us to go down there and take a guided tour of the exhibit.  Cameras were not allowed, so no photos.. and the kiddos are working on their summaries, so those will come soon!

The display is mostly all art that was created by the Japanese while living in the camp.  They used normal everyday things and their awesome skills and didn't waste anything.  There were a few pictures of what the camp may have looked like and a model of what the area looks like now, mostly a cemetery,  but it is a park of sorts as well.

Cameras were not allowed in the museum, so I have no photos...
