Yellow Terror-The Collections and Paintings of Roger Shimomura
Curatorial Essay by Stacey Uradomo-Barre
This is the catalogue from The Wing Luke Museum in Seattle that featured the paintings of Roger Shimomura together with the memorabilia and objects depicting racial stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans accumulated by the artist over the years.
