"Poston" was displayed at the Escondido Center for the Arts. It was met with great enthusiasm and viewers were shocked at the sheer number of names of actual internees - and that this was only one of TEN camps. I am excited about seeing all ten of these on display in 2012.
A video of the work in progress can be seen here:. Since it was the first of ten camps that were assembled, much of the work was done in my living room!!!
