Unsettled/Resettled: Seattle's Hunt Hotel
July 7 – September 25, 2016

Of the over 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry who were incarcerated in concentration camps during World War II, thousands returned homeless and jobless to their former communities in the Seattle area. Unsettled/Resettled recalls the resettlement experience of the families and individuals who found lodging at the Seattle Japanese Language School from 1945 until 1959, when it operated as a temporary hostel. Learn more about this lost chapter of history through interviews, archival footage, photographs, and original artworks by Aki Sogabe.

Developed by the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington, this traveling exhibit will make its Portland debut at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center before heading to the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

Exhibit Opening–White House Horses; The West Wing; and James Hoban: White House Architect
Event on 2013-05-31 00:00:00
May. 31, 2013 – May. 31, 2013

Next occurs on: May. 31, 2013
Date(s): May. 31, 2013

Event Time: 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM

White House Horses; The West Wing; and James Hoban: White House Architect
A trio of exhibitions from the White House Historical Association
 

This FREE opening will be held at 6:00 PM in the Keller Gallery of the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum.  Reservations are appreciated.  Please call 330-455-7043.

White House Horses
American presidents throughout history have appreciated the utility and admired the grandeur of the horse.  George Washington regarded horses as a source of pardonable pride, and his warhorses were of great importance to him as loyal companions and symbols of his leadership. A succession of presidents since his time has enjoyed the beauty and skill of these uncomplaining public servants for work, sport, and leisure.

The West Wing
This exhibit examines the addition of The West Wing, which has become a symbol of American presidential power in modern society.  From its initial construction in 1902, its expansion in the 1930s and the endless upgrades to synch the West Wing with each succeeding era, this building has been the nerve center of American democracy.

James Hoban: White House Architect
James Hoban's life is a memorable Irish-American success story. In his boyhood he learned the craft of carpenter and wheelwright, and became an architect by profession and a builder by trade. Hoban came to America with high ambitions, and designed and erected many buildings; but what keeps his name alive today arises from one special commission – he was the architect of the White House.

This exhibit will be on display through October 27.

 Style in Silk: Tradition and Innovation in Chinese Fashion

On Friday, February 1, 2013, Meridian International Center will present Style in Silk: Tradition and Innovation in Chinese Fashion, a unique exhibition of silk art and fashion in Washington, D.C. This joint U.S.-Chinese cultural project marks the first time American audiences will experience materials from the textile study collection at the world’s largest silk museum in Hangzhou, China.

This presentation is the seventh in a series of exhibitions organized with Chinese partners over the last decade by Meridian’s Art for Cultural Diplomacy program. It is the second exhibit developed through Meridian’s American-Chinese Cultural Initiative, a public-private partnership between U.S. and Chinese businesses, non-profit cultural organizations, and government entities that strengthens and improves relations between the two nations.

Style in Silk is curated by Meridian International Center and the Chinese National Silk Museum, with support from the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China. The Exhibition celebrates China’s time-honored tradition in silk art and will feature 62 silk costumes, paintings, and textiles. Viewers will learn about the materials, techniques, and aesthetics that characterize ancient and contemporary Chinese fashion, as well as appreciate couture clothing by world-renowned designers, such as NE•TIGER, Qi Gang, Qiu Haisuo, and Wu Haiyan.

The Exhibition will coincide with Meridian’s third-annual Lunar New Year celebration in cooperation with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Washington, D.C. According to Ambassador Stuart W. Holliday, Meridian President & CEO, “Although our two countries may differ in many areas, culture – a universally human phenomenon – is one place where we can find common ground; build genuine respect for one another; and turn mutual challenges into collaborative opportunities.”

Meridian’s American-Chinese Cultural Initiative, and shared projects such as the Style in Silk exhibition, play an integral role in fostering deeper understanding between the United States and China. Mr. Li Dongwen, Minister-Counselor for Culture at the Embassy of China, states “for more than ten years, Meridian International Center has worked closely with Chinese cultural organizations to develop innovative exhibitions and presentations that have been viewed by large audiences in China and the United States. Our friends at Meridian have a unique ability to identify projects that genuinely represent Chinese culture, while developing creative ways to present them to the American public. Style in Silk is another important step in bringing our two peoples closer together.”

We were in downtown Anchorage for Fur Rondy events in February 2010 and popped into the Egan Center to warm up. We noticed a cool dog exhibit but I’ve lost my notes with the name of the exhibit and the name of the individual dogs – so if you know it please send it my way.
