Museum #9066 Project
In fall 2013, students from Drury University were asked to design a museum remembering the World War II Japanese-American internment camp located in Rowher, Arkansas. Situated at the site of the original camp, this museum design should speak to the natural setting as much as the collection itself. Students were provided with a time- line explaining the history of the camps, artifacts from the camps, and artwork created during internment. They were told that temporary exhibition space would be needed to house work by artists that focus on the camps. An exterior space would also need to be created for reflection.
