The lively event Blues in the Garden takes place in a once-unlikely location, the quarry now known as the Japanese Tea Garden. 


A stop-motion samurai film — that's the germ of an idea that grew into the sprawling fantasy film, Kubo and the Two Strings.

It's a coming-of-age epic set in fantasy Japan about a young storyteller who makes magic with music and origami paper. The film stars Art Parkinson as Kubo, the Samurai's son, as well as Charlize Theron, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara, George Takei and Matthew McConaughey.

Many people know that during World War II, the United States created a system of internment camps for resident aliens from Japan as well as American citizens of Japanese descent.

However, what’s not generally known is that some Germans and Italians were targeted as well. They, too, were put into camps. Some of them were deported.
