Hisako Hibi

Licensing

Hisako Hibi was born in Fukui, Japan in 1907. When she was 13 years old, she came to the United States with her parents. While attending the California School of Fine Arts, now the San Francisco Art Institute, she met fellow artist and future husband, George Hibi.

During World War II, Hisako, along with her husband and two children, were incarcerated in Tanforan Assembly Center and then the Topaz concentration camp in Utah. While at camp, Hisako and George stayed involved with art in the camp school system.

This collection features some of the paintings that Hisako did while incarcerated. Her art depicts the daily lives and activities of those incarcerated during World War II. To see the rest of Hisako's paintings, please visit the Japanese American National Museum website.
