Current Exhibits, American History, Japanese Culture, Democracy

Arroyo Vista Inn guests have reported this is one of the most compelling and thought provoking history exhibits they have seen in a long time! Original barracks of the Japanese internment camps of World War II are on display.

369 E. First Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Tu.,W, F, S, S 11-5 p.m.
Thursday 12-8 p.m.
This provocative exhibit makes one consider the evolution of "We" in "we the people" to include women and minorities.  The exhibit examines conditions before, during and after World War II and how fear and prejudice can influence societal thinking and behavior.  This timely exhibit causes one to examine the roots and foundations of democracy in this country and others.

Closes August 28, 2011. Plan to stay a few days at Arroyo Vista Inn to absorb the history, culture, and natural setting of the San Gabriel Valley as well as that of downtown Los Angeles (easily accessible by Metro Rail.)
