More than 60 years later\, in 2015\, a controversial&nbsp\; <span style ="background-color: initial\;">attempt by a private party to auction the artifacts was averted by Japanese American community leaders and activist s. Ultimately\,&nbsp\; <span style="background-color: initial\;">the Eaton Collection was transferred to the Japanese American National Museum for s afekeeping and conservation.&nbsp\; <span style="background-color: initial \;">The museum is now actively seeking input from the community about the items in the collection through a traveling pop-up&nbsp\; <span style="bac kground-color: initial\;">display and accompanying workshops. The display includes physical or digital representation of every item in the collectio n&mdash\; <span style="background-color: initial\;">more than 400 individu al photographs\, sculptures\, paintings and watercolors\, jewelry items\, vases\, beads\, nameplates\,&nbsp\; <span style="background-color: initial \;">and other items handmade by Japanese Americans while enduring incarcer ation in the WWII camps. Contested Histories is&nbsp\; <span style="backgr ound-color: initial\;">intended to help gather information about each indi vidual object so that the museum&rsquo\;s efforts to preserve and catalog the&nbsp\; <span style="background-color: initial\;">collection can be as complete as possible. Camp survivors\, their family members\, and friends are encouraged to share with&nbsp\; <span style="background-color: initial \;">JANM information they know or remember about the objects\, including w ho is depicted in the many photographs.&nbsp\; <span style="background-col or: initial\;">Visit <a href="http://www.janm.org/exhibits/contested-histo ries/">janm.org/contested-histories</a> for more information about the Eat on Collection\, the pop-up display\, and travel schedule.\nJapanese Americ an Museum of San Jose\n 535 North Fifth Street\n San Jose\, CA 95112\nJoin us for a brief workshop on July 12 at 6pm to discover and interact with t he history of the pop-up collection.\nViewing and workshop free with museu m admission:\n JAMsj Members: Free\n Adults: $8\n Seniors (65 and older wi th valid ID): $5\n Students (with valid ID): $5\n Children (under 5): Free \n Active Military &amp\; Family: Free SUMMARY:Contested Histories URL:/en/events/2018/07/12/contested-histories/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
