"Roger Shimomura: An American Knockoff"

January 17 – March 29, 2015

Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery

Organized by the Museum of Art at Washington State University, the exhibition features the artwork of Seattle native and Lawrence, Kansas-based artist Roger Shimomura, whose paintings and prints address socio-political issues of Asian Americans through a style that combines his childhood interest in comic books with the traditions of American Pop art and Japanese woodcut prints. The exhibition will include approximately 50 paintings and prints from the early 1970s to the present, with an emphasis on his recent work.
