JAM exhibit: “J-Town 4Ever”

June 3- August 31, 2006

JAM Workshop and the National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS) are proud to announce a new exhibit called “J-Town 4Ever”. The exhibit opened on June 3, 2006 at the NJAHS Peace Gallery at 1684 Post St,, San Francisco, CA. and will be on display through August 31, 2006. JAM Workshop’s “JTown 4Ever” is an exhibit of old and new silkscreen prints that feature artists’ impressions of Japantown. The project was made possible through a grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission.

Above all, the exhibit celebrates JAM’s revival as a community silkscreen workshop and the 100th Anniversary of Nihonmachi. According to Project Coordinator Rich Tokeshi, “This has been a very eventful year for Nihonmachi. 2006 will be remembered for J-Town’s 100th Anniversary, as well as the year in which much of its property went up for sale. Everyone is wondering, Will Japantown survive?” In addition to work by Tokeshi, there will be new silkscreen works by Leon Sun and Leland Wong. Several of the new prints will be on sale to support the cost of the project and to benefit JAM Workshop.
