Forgotten Faces: The Comfort Women of World War II
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 5, 2015
$10 admission/Free for Museum members
They came from Indonesia, China, Korea, the Philippines and every region invaded by the Japanese Imperial Army in the dark years of 1932-1945. Women and girls from conquered nations were pressed into wartime service as so-called "Comfort Women" to meet the sexual needs of soldiers and officers of the Imperial Army in the field. Since the mid-1990s, survivors have shared their stories, and artists and filmmakers inspired by their ordeal have created stunning artwork in response. The exhibit will feature digital art, video, photography and paintings.
