The Mestizo Institute of Culture and Arts - MICA will present "Gasa Gasa Girl Goes to Camp, Watercolors" by Lily Havey, April 13-May 14, 2015. Lily Yuriko Nakai was 10 years old in 1942, when Executive Order 9066 forced her and her Japanese family to be relocated to a camp at Amache along the Arkansas River, in the southeastern corner of Colorado. Yuriko Nakai thought she was going camping. Instead, she was being interned, along with 120,000 other Japanese Americans (many, like her, born in the U.S.). The opening reception will be held April 17, 6-9 p.m.
