“Atoms and Art” exhibit

“Atoms and Art” exhibit showcases renowned Pueblo artist Maria Martinez and her ties to Los Alamos history and culture.

The exhibit brings to life the extraordinary intersection of history, culture and art — despite remarkably different backgrounds — that occurred between Brode and Martinez, a Native American artist, during the Manhattan Project. The “Atoms and Art” Exhibit will focus largely on the historic dance held with Pueblo members and Los Alamos residents that occurred at San Ildefonso in December of 1945.

Opening of the exhibit will take place from 4 to 6 p.m.
