Olympia WA – April 13, 2011 Join Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility for the closing reception of Particles on the Wall at Olympia’s 2nd Annual Environmental Film Festival (April 15-17). The closing reception to this wonderful event will take place April 16 12PM-3PM at Capitol Theater, 206 5th Ave SE, Olympia.
Particles on the Wall, the first exhibit of its kind, is an interdisciplinary exhibit exploring elements of the nuclear age, science, Hanford history, their thread through our lives and their bearing on the Columbia River and natural world.
The exhibit interweaves visual art, poems, and science with history and memorabilia to address issues of radioactive contamination, nuclear weapons and technology in Washington State, and their roles in southeastern Washington’s desert landscape as well as impacts on local and global communities.
Mingle with artists, poets, and scientist exhibit contributors hear poetry readings, enjoy refreshments, and add your own story to the exhibit in the This is My Hanford live interview corner. Stick around for the evening screenings.
Also! Pick up FREE TICKETS to the Seattle GREEN FESTIVAL at this event.
