Me, Judy Shintani, and fellow coastside alumni Judy Johnson-Williams, are in an art show which opens this Friday, 2/15. JFKU alumni sister Dorothy Nissen is showing her work in this show too.

“Acts of war make people behave in many different ways. The Women On War exhibit features images of war, not just the Iraq War, but all wars past and present seen through women’s eyes.”
