Atomic Footprints and Particles on the Wall

This year's From Hiroshima to Hope event will include viewings of Atomic Footprints, a poster display based on Particles on the Wall (POTW,) the multidisciplinary exhibit examining Hanford and the troubling impacts of the nuclear age. Atomic Footprints includes key pieces represented in the exhibit, that fuses visual art, poetry, science and history. The exhibit addresses both the human and environmental legacy of nuclear technology, including radioactive waste and storage issues, as well as the toll and consequences of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and related bomb production. This year's keynote speaker, Kathleen Flenniken, is featured in Atomic Footprints, with her poems, "Bedroom Community," and "Richland Dock, 1956." Atomic Footprints will be displayed alongside photographs depicting the aftermath of the atomic bombings, on display courtesy of The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience. 2particlesLogos
