Hanging our ----1942 Heart Mountain executive order 9066---- at the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center

This is some of the Textile Artists of the Greater Yellowstone.  This photo was taken after hanging our art at the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center. The show opened in the exhibit hall March 1, 2016.  We will have an artist reception April 7th 6:00pm-8:00pm.  At that time the center will be open for all to see the history and story of the Japanese Americans that were sent to this camp, as prisoners, without a trial, and without a  say. 
This exhibit includes 22 quilts made by Textile Artists of the Greater Yellowstone,  and a larger, hand quilted quilt made by Ms Ito, as a child she and her family were interned at the Heart Mountain Camp.  
If you are unable to attend the artist reception or this show, I strongly urge you to make the trip out to see this center.  It is truly an eye opening, heart wrenching experience that not one single US citizen should miss!!
