A lecture on the Art of Chiura Obata by Kimi Kodani Hill, the artist’s granddaughter will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Carnegie Arts Center, 250 N. Broadway, Turlock.

Chiura Obata was a well-known Japanese-American artist who was forcefully relocated from his home and community to an internment camp during World War II. Obata’s works are included in numerous public and private collections, including the de Young Museum in San Francisco. 

His granddaughter, Kimi Kodani Hill, will be presenting a lecture on the life and art of Chiura Obata, as well as signing copies of her book, “Topaz Moon: Chiura Obata’s Art of the Internment.” The book highlights over 100 paintings and sketches by Obata, including letters, interviews and family documents as a testimony to his time of imprisonment.
