Sumo Joe At The Japanese American National Museum

Sometimes you just gotta ask!

: Please consider SUMO JOE picture book

Hello Japanese American National Museum store manager,

My name is Mia Wenjen and Im the author of a rhyming picture book SUMO JOE. I am half Japanese American and wrote it to show that sumo is not a sport of fat men in diapers, but with a rich history that dates back to the Shinto religion and culture.

The illustrator, Nat Iwata, is also half Japanese American. Our Japanese American parents were both forced from the west coast during WWII. Nats father was born in Internment Camp and his grandfather died in one. My mothers family was forced from Japantown in San Francisco to a remote part of Utah where we had relatives who owned a farm. My mother and her family lived in a tent for four years.

I also wrote two middle grade biography anthologies for ages 8 and up.

Asian Pacific American Heroes profiles 17 Asian Pacific American leaders including half Japanese American scientist Eugenie Clark, and Japanese American chef Niki Nakayama. Its published by Scholastic and is available here:

I also used this format for Asian Pacific American Heroes to self-publish my Kickstarter book, Changing the Game: Asian Pacific American Female Athletes. I wrote this book in response to my high school daughters statement that there are no Asian American female athletes besides Chloe Kim.

  • While football fans and commentators were entering SoFi on Sunday, medical freedom protestors attempted to shut down access to the Super Bowl. Starting at noon, participants “accused state officials of hosting ‘a Super Bowl while forcing kids’ to wear masks in schools.” Governor Gavin Newsom will be considering school masking rules this week.
  • There was a fire Saturday morning around 6:54 a.m. at 761 South Vermont Ave. It took 89 LAFD personnel 36 minutes to extinguish the Koreatown blaze. It “started as an exterior rubbish fire that extended into the wall and interior of a unit in a row of the businesses.”
  • Saturday evening around 7 p.m., the FD was headed to the area “around East Sierra Avenue and Azusa Veterans Way.” The brush fire, which was officially referred to as the Madre Fire, burned about two acres of land by 9 p.m. “The department was using two water-dropping helicopters and night vision technology in their battle to control the flames.”
  • The Japanese American National Museum plans to live-stream L.A.’s Day of Remembrance on Saturday via its YouTube channel. This year’s theme is: “Power of Communities: Building Strength Through Collective Action.” “The annual event commemorates President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 9066 on Feb. 19, 1942, which resulted in the unjust incarceration of over 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans in American concentration camps.”

    Officers And The Board Of Trustees

    Currently, the board of trustees includes 46 trustees and 15 life trustees. Even including the board’s 14 “honorary” trustees, who do not have voting rights and do not play as direct a role in the museum, this amounts to an average individual contribution of more than $7 million. The Founders Wall was created in 2004, when MoMA’s expansion was completed, and features the names of actual founders in addition to those who gave significant gifts about a half-dozen names have been added since 2004. For example, Ileana Sonnabend‘s name was added in 2012, even though she was only 15 when the museum was established in 1929.

    Heckscher And Other Buildings

    The idea for the Museum of Modern Art was developed in 1929 primarily by Abby Aldrich Rockefeller and two of her friends, Lillie P. Bliss and . They became known variously as “the Ladies” or “the adamantine ladies”. They rented modest quarters for the new museum in the Heckscher Building at 730 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, and it opened to the public on November 7, 1929, nine days after the Wall Street Crash. Abby Rockefeller had invited A. Conger Goodyear, the former president of the board of trustees of the Albright Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, to become president of the new museum. Abby became treasurer. At the time, it was America’s premier museum devoted exclusively to modern art, and the first of its kind in Manhattan to exhibit European modernism. One of Rockefeller’s early recruits for the museum staff was the noted Japanese-American photographer Soichi Sunami , who served the museum as its official documentary photographer from 1930 until 1968.

    During that time the museum initiated many more exhibitions of noted artists, such as the lone Vincent van Gogh exhibition on November 4, 1935. Containing an unprecedented sixty-six oils and fifty drawings from the Netherlands, as well as poignant excerpts from the artist’s letters, it was a major public success due to Barr’s arrangement of the exhibit, and became “a precursor to the hold van Gogh has to this day on the contemporary imagination”.
