The Art of Gaman: Arts and Crafts from the Japanese American Internment Camps 1942-1946: "Gaman" is a Japanese term originating from Zen Buddhism that means "to endure the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity." For some of the Japanese American prisoners enduring the long injustice of internment, self-expression and artisanship were the key to gaman. This collection of their work—ranging from paintings to furniture to figurines, often fashioned from scrap materials and found objects—is stunning.
