Exhibits

JASC has authored both physical and digital exhibits utilizing resources from the Legacy Center Archives.

In 2015, the JASC worked in conjunction with members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance to develop the exhibition Chicago’s Families: Finding Home, which is now available for viewing online.

In 2010, we developed and produced the exhibit Winning the Peace: The Story of Chicagoans in the Military Intelligence Service, 1941-1952 to tell a little-known story and help honor World War II veterans of the Military Intelligence Service

In celebration of JASC’s 60th anniversary in 2006, we produced the exhibit Origins of Now: ReBuilding Community, which examined the vital question of “Why are there so many Japanese Americans in Chicago?”

Each of these 15-panel exhibits is available for display for educational purposes. Please contact JASC Legacy Center via email or call 773-275-0097 ext. 222.

Three on-line exhibits are also on this website: Beauty in Desolation: Art from the Camps, 1942-1945 Two Countries / Two Kibei, and Early Days of the Japanese American Service Committee: The Chicago Resettlers Committee.

All exhibits were curated by JASC’s consultant archivist, Jane Kenamore.
