Inspired by the book Executive Order 9066, Scott Tsuchitani takes a critical look at the mass detention of Japanese Americans living on the West Coast during WWII and the images used to describe this history. He uses aquatint to beautifully render these historic photographs, adding his own visual commentary. He practices and teaches printmaking at the City College of San Francisco Fort Mason Campus.

This exhibition also includes information on the source photographs and a description of the aquatint technique Tsuchitani used.
The exhibition is on view during building hours:
Mon-Thurs 7:00am-9:00pm
Fri 7:00am-5:00pm
