Event Details

A group art exhibition “Facing Rocky Flats” will open at the Denver Public Library, 10 W 14TH Ave Pkwy, on Sunday, August 26th at 2 p.m.

 

“Facing Rocky Flats” art exhibition coincides with the controversial planned public opening of the Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge. The exhibition uses art and oral history to explore the past, present, and future of the former nuclear weapons facility. “Facing Rocky Flats” surveys the first of what will be many generations of creative undertakings necessary to keep the site’s history and memory alive.

From 1951 to 1989, Rocky Flats produced the plutonium “pits” (or fissile cores) for every nuclear weapon in the U.S. arsenal.

Today the former bomb plant is invisible to the eye, yet its radioactive remnants will outlast the half-life of plutonium – 24,110 years. The legacy of Rocky Flats is still in its infancy.

(Sunday) 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
