To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ecoartspace and Remembering Hiroshima, Imagining Peace (RHIP) will present both artistic and scientific dialogues on our atomic legacies. Since that fateful day when the first nuclear bombs were used on a civilian population, artists have responded through a wide range of media. Patricia Watts, founder of ecoartspace, will begin the program with an overview of artists and artworks addressing nuclear issues. Ann Rosenthal, artist and RHIP board member, will present Infinity City, her decade-long collaboration with Stephen Moore, which explores living in the shadow of the bomb. Patricia DeMarco, PhD, has a doctorate in biology and has spent a 30-year career in energy and environmental policy. Etsuko Ichikawa is an artist, filmmaker, and activist who was born and raised in Tokyo.
This event is FREE to members and one guest. Non-members are invited to make a suggested donation of $10.
