    JAVA is proud to be a supporter of the Smithsonian's Day of Remembrance (DOR) Event. Here are the details:

    Japanese American Incarceration and the Art of Identity with Roger Shimomura

    Friday, February 19, 2016
    First Floor Center and Warner Bros. Theater

    The museum will mark on the 74th anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066, authorizing the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WW II, with an evening of programming.

    Schedule

    5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. – Special Displays (First Floor Center)

    Visitors can stop by at a cart display to explore objects from the museum’s teaching collection and try on an army jacket based on the Japanese American 442 unit, or add a red stitch to the good luck belt of 1,000 stitches that imprisoned women within the camps would often make for their sons before they went off to war. Trading cards and comic pamphlets will be provided by our museum’s Youth Civic Engagement Program.

    Curators will also show objects out-of-storage highlighting the museum’s Japanese American history collection. Information on the National Japanese American Memorial maintenance project will be presented by the Japanese American Citizens League and information from the Embassy of Japan.

    6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Conversation, Performance & Donation Ceremony (Warner Bros. Theater)

    Roger Shimomura, a multifaceted Japanese American artist who works as a painter, printmaker, performance artist, professor and collector and is a camp survivor, will donate objects from his time in the camp. Following the donation ceremony journalist David Ono will lead a discussion with Shimomura about his life in the camp and his art.  A performance by Regie Cabico, a Filipino American poet and spoken word artist, who has appeared on HBO and MTV, will conclude the evening.

    8:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. – Book Signing

    Roger Shimomura will sign copies

    Constance Nayematsu Ishio (Connie), longtime resident of the Silver Spring area, died Friday, the 1st of January at her daughter’s home in Goodyear, Az. Born in 1920 in Crow Agency, MT, to Yahei and Koume (Mikami) Nayematsu, one of six children.  She received her BA degree in Early Childhood Education from Colorado State Teacher’s College in Greeley, CO.

    She taught preschool at Riverside Church in NYC before she married the late Col. Sunao (Phil) Ishio, on her birthday in 1945. After marriage, they moved to the Washington, DC area where she taught preschool for many years and saw many of her pupils finish college and become parents themselves.

    She was a charter member of the First Baptist Church of Wheaton and enjoyed watching the services of her church (now called Streams of Hope) every Sunday.

    She also enjoyed being part of the Kiwanis Club and the Women’s Club and made many new friends there. She supported her husband in his activities with JAVA (Japanese American Veteran’s Association) and the National Japanese American Memorial Foundation. She did volunteer sewing for various charitable organizations and was forever gathering material and thread.  She also participated in the Grand Readers program at the local elementary school near her house in Md.  She loved to cook and made many batches of peanut brittle and blueberry muffins which she bestowed on her many friends.

    She was preceded in death by her husband, with whom she shared 64 years of marriage, and her son, Douglas Ishio.  She is survived by her daughters, Julie Sloneker and her husband, Mark, and Holly Molden and her husband, Jim and their son, Dr. Jaime Molden.

    Memorial gifts made be made to Streams of Hope Church, 200 W Diamond Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877, or the Phil and Connie Ishio Scholarship Fund through JAVA.  Please make check out to the Japanese American Veterans Association, and mail to LTC Mark Nakagawa, 9455 Park Hunt Court, Springfield, VA 22153 (note the name of the fund on memo line).

    A memorial gathering will be held at Streams of Hope Church, 200 W Diamond Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877 on the 12th of March 2016 at 11:00 am with reception to follow.
