Atomic Landscapes 

When: March 21-May 7 2016

In 1945, at the Trinity test site outside of Alamogordo, New Mexico, a group of researchers from Los Alamos National Labs triggered the first artificial nuclear explosion, a reaction so powerful that some feared it might burn off the Earth's atmosphere. In the 71 years since, nuclear weapons testing and mining has left scars across the Western and Southwestern landscapes, both physical and social. Come by the IDEA Space at Colorado College to explore those scars through the Atomic Landscapes exhibit, set to close this coming Thursday, May 5. Technology that can — and has — erased whole cities warrants no small amount of attention. Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, 825 N.
