Wendy Maruyama: The Tag Project:
ReThinking the Artistic Process

Wendy Maruyama

Wendy Maruyama was one of the first women to graduate from the School for American Craftsmen at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Since the early 1970s, Maruyama has been teaching: first metalworking and jewelry, then woodworking and furniture design at SDSU.

Her first installation piece, ?Executive Order 9066/The Tag Project? addressed the internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans in 1942. This event dramatically changed the Japanese American psyche while being a historic footnote to most Americans. Her award-winning work has been shown nationally and internationally and is in the permanent collections of many art museums in the U.S. and the U.K.
