They spand from magical fantasies of illusion to personal narratives, that deal with cultural realities, understanding of beauty and gender identification.  Bettiga Gallery Kamome: A Tsunami Boat comes Home. A little over two years after the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku-oki earthquake triggered a massive tsunami off the coast of northeastern Japan, a lone boat washed up on the shores of Crescent City, California. The confirmation of the boat as belonging to a high school in Rikuzentakata was first the step in an amazing story that has linked tow tsunami-vulnerable communities on opposite sides of the Pacific and initiated friendships between high school students in both communities. Museum visitors will vies Amy Uyeki’s beautiful illustrations from the book Kamome: A Tsunami Boat Comes Home and learn how the journey of this small boat made a big difference in the lives of people living on two continents separated by the vast Pacific Ocean. By Lori Dengler, Amy Uyeki, and Amya Miller. Melvin Schuler Sculpture Garden “Soul Night”, Chuck Johnson. The “Soul Night” installation” is inspired by “The Big Picture Humboldt”, an exhibition curated by Johnson, utilizing and beautifying disused public spaces with wheat-pasted, large format black and white photographs.
