Drawn In: New Art from WWII Camps at Rohwer and Jerome
Concordia Gallery
April 11 - August 23, 2014

This show features artwork created by people held in the Japanese American internment camps in Arkansas during World War II. The exhibition was inspired by the Butler Center's remarkable collection of art work from the camp at Rohwer, donated by Rosalie Santine Gould of McGehee, and by the extraordinary generosity of people who lived in the camps or had loved ones who did and wanted the Butler Center to have more art created at the camps at Rohwer and Jerome. People with a personal connection to the camps were deeply moved by the existence of the collection and by the Butler Center's public exhibitions of camp materials and want as wide an audience as possible to know about this chapter of Arkansas and U.S. history.
