“Harmony” is a sculpture by George Tsutukawa located on the Washington State Fairgrounds near the location of the future Remembrance Gallery. It is a memorial for the West Coast Japanese-Americans who were interned during World War II.
This sign was funded by a 2016 National JACL Legacy Grant.
“Harmony” is a column made of dark bronze.
Figures of men, women and children are cut in silhouette into the sides of the column.
The negative, open spaces form interesting patterns that shift as one examines the column from various angles.
“I wanted to depict people of all races and creeds living in harmony. Then these sad things won't be happening over and over again,”
August 21, 1983
