NEW EXHIBIT ON JAPANESE AMERICANS OPENS JUNE 9
 
“This Land is Your Land, this Land is My Land,” a yearlong exhibition documenting the history of Chula Vista’s Japanese Americans, will open June 9 at the Chula Vista Heritage Museum, 360 Third Avenue.

Featuring historical photographs and artifacts, the exhibition will depict the arrival of Japanese workers in 1905, the “celery wars” of the 1920s and 1930s, and the community’s World War II internment and post-war resettlement. Also shown is a full-scale replica of a room in the Poston, AZ, barracks where about 450 Chula Vista residents were interned during the war.

Chula Vista Heritage Museum is open Tuesday and Thursday, noon to 4 p.m. and Saturday, noon to 3 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.thefcvl.org, or call (619) 427-8092.

This Land is Your Land, this Land is My Land will run through May 2013. This exhibition is sponsored by the Friends of the Chula Vista Library and the Chula Vista Heritage Museum in partnership with the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego and with funding from California Reads. California Reads programs are made possible with support from Cal Humanities in partnership with California Center for the Book.
