On Thursday, September 21 at the Thacher Gallery in Gleeson Library, ten members of the University of San Francisco community responded to ten unique objects in Something from Nothing: Art and Handcrafted Objects from America's Concentration Camps. Artifacts were created by people of Japanese ancestry while being held in detention centers— Department of Justice camps and ten permanent camps. Perspectives incorporated personal history and stories, scholarly analysis, and creative expression. The event began with brief 1-2 minute perspectives from each presenter and followed by a reception.
