The Vashon Heritage Museum hosted a crowd of people at the opening of the exhibit “Joy and Heartache” last Friday. The exhibit tells the story of Japanese Americans on Vashon from 1900 to the present.

The exhibit was not quite complete at the opening, but several elements were in place, including this screen of 2,000 cranes created by Alice Larson, one of the curators of the exhibit, second from the left. In the foreground, Rita Brogan, also a curator, speaks with museum guests. The exhibit is expected to remain for several months.
