AARP Texas and the Japanese American Citizens League will celebrate the Houston opening of the “Art of Gaman” exhibit with a reception on Tuesday, Feb. 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Asia Society Texas Center. AARP members who attend the reception can view the exhibit that evening.

The exhibit, which runs Jan. 29-May 31 at the Houston Holocaust Museum, features more than 120 artifacts made by Japanese Americans incarcerated in camps during World War II. “Gaman” refers to the practice of enduring the seemingly unbearable, with patience and dignity.

The Feb. 3 event is free, but registration is required. To register, go to aarp.cvent.com/TXGamanReception.
