Artist Reception: Wednesday, December 10, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Cornish College of the Arts is proud to present a solo exhibition of work by Lauren Iida (AR’14) in the Alumni Gallery. Castle Rock is for Lovers is an homage to the matriarchs of Iida’s family who endured incarceration during World War II at Tule Lake “Relocation Center” in northern California. The images in Iida’s delicate cut paper works come directly from a collection of photos belonging to the sister of her grandmother. These personal photos date back to the 1930s. By examining these glimpses into the past, Iida investigates her family’s complex history. By rendering them lovingly in cut paper, she honors and memorializes this complicated past.
