Jimmy Tsutomu Mirikitani was a fiercely independent Japanese American artist who lost his family and friends to the United States internment camps during World War II and Hiroshima’s atomic bombing. He survived the trauma of those two significant events and homelessness by creating art every day. Mr. Mirikitani passed away at age 92 on October 21, 2012 in New York City. This remarkable exhibition about the art and life of Mr. Mirikitani is a poignant exploration of the lasting impacts of war and discrimination, and the healing power of creativity.

Related subjects include Japanese American internment during World War II, Hiroshima and the Atomic Bomb, 9/11 and its aftermath, the elderly and care in the U。S。, and immigration to the U。S。
