March 11, 2012 will mark the one year anniversary of the Great East Japan
Earthquake and Tsunami. The months after this disaster brought to the
forefront incredible stories of resilience and generosity as Japan began
recovery efforts. The
Nikkei, the leading Japanese business newspaper, chronicled the
devastation and recovery efforts through an extensive collection of
photographs that they have shared with our city.
The Osaka Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International in partnership
with the Japan America Society of Chicago, Office of the Governor of
Illinois, Consulate General of Japan at Chicago, City of Osaka (Chicago
Office), Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Chicago, JETRO Chicago,
School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago, Chicago Loop Alliance,
Chicago Photography Collective, and Japan Society, Inc. (New York) are
currently developing an exhibition of forty-six photos, approximately 16 by
24, which will be featured at two downtown galleries. The first exhibit will
be featured at the State of Illinois Thompson Center on the ground level
lobby, March 12-16 (the Thompson Center is closed Sunday, March 11). The
following week, the photography exhibit will be moved to Block 37 (108 N.
State Street), March 21-31. Similar Nikkei
photo exhibitions are being produced in New York and London.
