Portland Japanese Garden is currently exhibiting Healing Nature: Gardens and Art of Manzanar, with over 40 photographs on display by three leading twentieth-century photographers – Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, and Toyo Miyatake. This exhibition examines the gardens and art at Manzanar Relocation Center through the lens of these historic photographers to reveal the resilience, perseverance, and resourcefulness of Japanese American internees during World War II.
We know that with the pandemic, not all are able to get out of the house right now. We hope that this sampling of photographs from the exhibition might help to bring the experience to you virtually.
