0603 Poll Signs Beth Ruyak



Just last week, Sacramento City Council voted  to repeal a law that had lingered on the books for many years: Japanese Internment during World War II. Now, the Crocker Art Museum is confirming that they had stored art and artifacts for Japanese families and artists during the war.  Museum Registrar, John Caswell, will discuss the return of these artifacts to the families that were incarcerated during internment and the documents to support each piece well, all but one plant stand.

Playwright Andrew Kooman’s “She Has a Name” tells the intense story of a lawyer who decides to build a legal case against a brothel trafficking in Malaysia to Thailand, giving a face to modern day human trafficking. After touring in Canada, this critically acclaimed play is making its American debut at the FreeFall Stage in Folsom until June 22.


Life in 24 Frames is an indie band from Northern California that is once of many local acts to be featured in Sacramento's Concerts in the Park series. They play this Friday at Caesar Chavez Park, which serves as a prelude to the release of their newest album, "Bitter End," which will be on vinyl for a limited time in July.
