Particles on the Wall: Art and Science Exploration of Hanford and the Nuclear Age
721 NW 9th Ave.
May 3-June 14
Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility hosts the first-ever Oregon showing of Particles on the Wall, a multidisciplinary exhibit exploring the impact of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation on our region and our world.
The exhibit is a thought-provoking collection of Hanford-related visual art, poetry, essays, scientific literature and historical artifacts and is being exhibited at a time when leaking waste tanks have refocused public attention on Hanford as the most toxic site in the Western Hemisphere.
Particles on the Wall was created in 2010 and has been shown in nine communities throughout the state of Washington. It includes works by notable writers and artists such as Sherman Alexie and Kathleen Fleinnigan, Poet Laureate of Washington state. This will be the first time the exhibit has been shown in Oregon and will include new contributions from Oregon artists including Tiel Aisha Ansari, the 13 Hats collective, Leah Stenson, and Scott T. Starbuck.
