Japanese-American internees cultivate the earth at the Tule Lake War Relocation Center during World War II. The photo is part of the Los Altos History Museum’s new exhibition, “I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story.”
With immigration on the minds of many in today’s political climate, the Los Altos History Museum’s latest exhibition, “I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story,” seems to arrive at an appropriate time.
The exhibition, scheduled to open Thursday and run through Jan. 7, details the story of Asian immigrants throughout U.S. history and the contributions they’ve made. The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center developed the display into a nationally touring exhibition in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
