Shadows of Minidoka, the art exhibit at the Lawrence Arts Center by local artist and Kansas University distinguished professor Roger Shimomura, closes Saturday.
The exhibit focuses on Shimomura’s experiences as a boy in a Japanese-American internment camp during World War II. It opened Feb. 11 at the center, 940 N.H.
Shimomura will be the featured artist on April 9 for the arts center’s 31st annual Benefit Art Auction. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the live auction begins at 7:30 p.m. Attendees also can participate in a silent auction.
The entire auction exhibition will be available for public viewing beginning March 17.
Tickets are $40 in advance, $50 at the door. Proceeds benefit the Lawrence Arts Center gallery program.
