Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit
Saturday, April 21, 5 p.m., Blue Line Arts, no cover
Early in Paul Kitagaki Jr.’s photography career, he learned Dorothea Lange had photographed his family as they awaited detention following FDR’s decision to intern Japanese Americans. The image inspired his yearslong project to identify and revisit the internees in the historic photos. The result: a then-and-now look at the people whose lives were overturned by xenophobia. Kitagaki, a Sacramento Bee photographer, will discuss the process during an artist talk (5pm), followed by a meet-the-artist reception. 405 Vernon Street in Roseville, www.bluelinearts.org.
