Artist Reception for The Textile Artists of the Greater Yellowstone at HMWF
This is a photo taken by Claire Cella a staff member of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation. Those 2 beautiful children are my grandkids. It was taken at the Artist Reception for Textile Artists of the Greater Yellowstone and honored guest Naoko Yoshimura Ito. Ms Ito was interned with her family as a teenager. Her quilt expresses a touching story about the time she spent at Heart Mtn, but also of the "Letting Go" of the hurt and pain that many Japanese Americans felt being inprisoned without trial by a country they loved and called home.
