Under a Mushroom Cloud: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the Atomic Bomb

Exhibition through June 7, 2020

A uranium bomb devastated Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and a plutonium bomb exploded over Nagasaki on August 9. Beyond the many dead, the survivors have endured physical and spiritual pain to this day. Japanese Americans then living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who survived are a part of this vital story.

To commemorate the upcoming 75th anniversary of the bombings, this special exhibition presents photographs, explanatory texts, artifacts, and contemporary art that shed light on this painful history and provides a safe space for discussion with the hope that such events never happen again.
