SAN FRANCISCO — “Days of Fire and Glory” is a free program being held in conjunction with the JAM (Japantown Art and Media) Workshop poster exhibit in the NJAHS (National Japanese American Historical Society) Peace Gallery, 1684 Post St. in San Francisco Japantown, on Saturday, April 13, at 2 p.m.
From 1977 to 2000, JAM Workshop produced community-based art and provided a vairety of classes. One of JAM’s most important services was screen printing. Colorful, imaginative hand-screened posters were produced to commemorate and announce local Asian American events, from political rallies to fundraising dances to festivals and community picnics. The exhibit revisits some of the memorable, exciting and significant posters produced by JAM’s graphic artists.
As April 13 is the first day of the 2013 Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival, it will be a good opportunity to check out both the festival and the JAM poster show. For more information, call (415) 921-5007 or visit www.njahs.org.
