Today is the anniversary.
Eve Andree Laramee, Professor and Chair, Department of Art & Art History
Pace University, NYC provides an overview of 20 years of work on nuclear issues that started with reading a newspaper article on United Nuclear Corporation’s Church Rock Uranium Mill Tailings Pond Spill, on Navajo land in New Mexico. Sometimes we ask “Could an artist do this?” about a call for Expressions of Interest about some aspect of environmental work. In this case ‘an artist has done this’. There is a more detailed version of this essay on the Women’s Environmental Art Directory as part of Issue 5 of their magazine, Atomic Legacy Art.
