SOLON— The Iowa Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility will be returning to the Solon Public Library for a display titled, “Nuclear Neighborhoods: 11,000 Generations.” This multimedia exhibit will be available for viewing from Aug. 6, the anniversary of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb explosion, through the Labor Day weekend.

On display will be art and artifacts exploring the major themes of today’s nuclear age. Included in the exhibit will be photographs, period newspapers, personal writing and other items showing how the nuclear age affects us all today. Also included will be items related to nuclear power and nuclear medicine, both of which are in the Solon neighborhood.

The Solon display will be part of a multiple site event, with additional exhibits at the University of Iowa Hardin Medical Library, the Kendall Gallery at the Iowa Memorial Union, the Iowa City Public Library and at area businesses.

The display will be informative for all ages and will be available during normal library hours. Click on this link for more information.
