This talk focuses on an artist’s book recently completed by Fred Hagstrom, Rae Schupak Nathan Professor of Art at Carleton College in Minnesota. The artist’s book is titled deeply honored and tells the story of Frank Shigemura, who came to Carleton College in 1943. 

Carleton participated in the student relocation project, a program that allowed Japanese American students to leave internment camps and continue their educations. Frank Shigemura was the first student to come to Carleton under that program. He left school to serve in the 442nd and was killed in France. His parents began a life long series of generous contributions to the College in appreciation for the help the College had offered their son. 

Program is free with admission. Reservations recommended to or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior to the event. Include the name, date, and time of the program, as well as your name and the total in your party.
