A Program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance and The National Endowment for the Arts.

Roger Shimomura, professor emeritus of art at the University of Kansas, uses his paintings and prints to examine his identity as a Japanese American, his artistic heritage-which ranges from Pop art to ukiyo-e prints, and his life in both Seattle, Washington and Lawrence, Kansas. His deft, wry sense of humor and remarkable skill as an artist will make for a stunning, visual presentation.
