Nuclear Neighborhoods is an interdisciplinary exhibit exploring major themes of our nuclear age. As a collaborative project integrating visual art, science, poems, and historical memorabilia, the exhibit illuminates our nuclear legacy with its associated health and environmental concerns about radioactive contamination, and the quest for peace. From uranium mining to bomb making and risks of detonations, from the production of nuclear materials to radioactive waste and storage issues, the exhibit invites the viewer to reflect on the global human and environmental costs of the nuclear age–from WW II and lasting well into the next 11,000 generations.
