roger shimomura exhibit at morikami museum

If you're anywhere near Delray Beach, Florida this spring, you might want to check out the art exhibition Return of the Yellow Peril: A Survey of the Work of Roger Shimomura, 1969-2007, running now through May. at The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. I've never had the chance to check out a roger Shimomura art exhibit, but from what I've seen through the web over the yars, it's pretty cool.

Shimomura blends images from ukiyo-e woodcut prints with images from
American popular culture to create a unique Japanese American style and powerful, humorous social commentary, from ironic constructions of cultural identity to denunciations of racial prejudice: Return of the Yellow Peril Debuts at The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens This Spring.

Return of the Yellow Peril runs now through May 10. To learn more about the exhibit, go the Morikami Museum website here. To see learn more about the work of artist Roger Shimomura, visit his official website here. The piece above is a personal favorite of mine. It's called "Keep On Talkin', Michelle Malkin."
