County Supervisor Contributes $5,000 for Venice JA Memorial

The Venice Arts Council has received a $5,000 grant from Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl (District 3) for the Venice Japanese American Memorial Monument.

“Japanese Americans experienced terrible injustices,” said Suzanne Thompson, co-founder of the VAC and chair of the Endangered Art Fund. “Two-thirds of those incarcerated were citizens of the United States. Serving on the VJAMM Committee has provided opportunities to combine my love for art and politics. I greatly appreciate the support received from Supervisor Kuehl, a true champion for social justice.”
