Artist Lauren Iida, who works mainly in cut paper, repositions the “memory net” she’s creating in recognition of the 80th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin Roosevelt, that allowed the U.S. Army to force people of Japanese descent to leave their homes and businesses and be taken to incarceration camps. The Memory Net Remembrance Project will be unveiled virtually at 3 p.m. Saturday by Densho, a Seattle nonprofit whose mission is “to preserve and share history of the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans to promote equity and justice today.” For more information, go to densho.org.
