Museums are defined by their collections, each with a unique point of view that is carefully shaped by the mission and vision of the institution. The Morikami Museum is devoted specifically to the acquisition, research, preservation, and exhibition of the story of Sukeji George Morikami and the Yamato Colony and committed broadly to the visual culture created by Japanese and Japanese Americans. The result of this effort over more than 40 years is not just a catalog of objects, but rather a collection of diverse ideas and unique stories illuminated by the objects.
