Go For Broke National Education Center

The Go For Broke National Education Center holds more than 1,150 life history interviews of Americans of Japanese ancestry who served in the United States Army in WWII. Many of the veterans interviewed were born and raised in Los Angeles and the surrounding area. Their videotaped interviews provide us with stories about the neighborhoods in which they lived and worked, the larger Japanese American Community in and around Los Angeles, both the Japanese and American cultures that shaped and molded their identity, values their parents taught them, a unique minority viewpoint of a pre-war and post-war Los Angeles, their experiences as soldiers in the U.S. Army in WWII and much more. Often the veterans contributed photographs and documents to complement their stories. The Go For Broke National Education Center would like to offer access to researchers, adding to the rich history of our city, our state and our country. Incorporated in 1989, Japanese American World War II veterans established the 100th/442nd/MIS WWII Memorial Foundation, now the Go For Broke National Education Center, to build the Go For Broke Monument. The Monument, the first of its kind on the mainland U.S., includes more than 16,000 names of Japanese American soldiers and officers who served overseas during World War II. It was unveiled in June 1999 and is located in downtown Los Angeles at Temple and Alameda streets. The Go For Broke National Education Center today focuses on providing a place and means by which all people can share their stories and recognize how the legacy of their lives contributes to the history of Los Angeles and the American ideals of freedom and equal opportunity for all.

Group SC 2009, An Intimate View of Southern California

1000 image , Color, HD digital archive by 50 artists working and living in Southern CA. Under the direction of Helen K. Garber and in collaboration with MINARC/Gallery Skaart, each artist documented their residential city over the course of the year 2009 and each story was edited to 20 images by Nancy-Louise Jones and presented as part of the Group SC 2009 Installation. 4 rear projection screens were set up at 90 degree angles surrounding the center projection hub consisting of a 1955 trailer. The was found abandoned in the forest in Idyllwild, reclaimed and refurbished as a mixed media mobile projection hub. Duce, a renowned LA based graffiti writer, created a 4 side mural depicting the economic climate of the time, now nicknamed, the Great Recession. Miss Lucy the trailer, now resides in the permanent collection of the San Diego Automotive Museum, Balboa Park. The inaugural installation was at Opening Night, Month of Photography, 2010, Bergamont Station, Santa Monica, CA, Autumn Lights Festival, Pershing Square, 2010 and the Medium Festival of Photography, San Diego, 2013. The installation was designed to break down and move easily. The original concept was to exhibit the installation at all locations covered and then drive the installation across the country to the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY. Photographers used to go on a journey and bring back the documentation to home, here we reversed the concept by bringing the documentation of the photographers' homes on a journey. We also wanted to invite the artists to join in the journey, document along the way, create a sequel exhibition. Miss Lucy travelled no further than San Diego as monies were not to be found for cultural pursuits during the Great Recession, the project was set aside, and the trailer/screens donated to the San Diego Automotive Museum. The collection still owns the 4 projectors and DVD players that are needed to present the installation.
