Roger Shimomura
(American, born 1939)

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

In "Yellow No Same" Roger Shimomura depicts the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, exploring the idea that Americans could not distinguish between the Japanese and their fellow citizens. Traditional figures evoking those found in Japanese woodblock prints are in the foreground, while Japanese Americans stand behind barbed wire.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with University of Washington.
