At the heart of this project are a pair of life-sized sculptures of the A-bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. We seek $8,500 for a project – Suspended Moment – which includes an exhibit of Kawano’s devastating sculptures accompanied by Meshi Chavez’s Butoh dance. We invite community members to take a Butoh workshop and participate in the performance. With our initial funding, we will take Suspended Moment to Hanford, WA and Los Alamos, NM, which gave birth to the nuclear problem.
My appreciation to Chris Allegri and From Hiroshima to Hope for sculpture stand design, construction, and donation.
