Event Description:

    “This work is about the human and environmental impact of the nuclear age around the world. … It is my hope that this exhibit and forthcoming book may help educate the international public more fully about the actual costs and consequences of the nuclear age, so that the wider public is sufficiently informed to insist on participating in making decisions about the future of the nuclear age.” – James Lerager
