The Shadow Project, 2016
YOU ME GALLERY
On August 6 and 9, 1945, atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. The blasts destroyed the cities and killed over 200,000 citizens. People were instantly vaporized.
In cooperation with International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) you are invited to take part in this year’s Shadow Project Thursday, August 11.
Hundreds of body outlines will be drawn in chalk on the streets and sidewalks of James St. North as a reminder to Hamiltonians of the human tragedy inflicted by nuclear weapons.
We need volunteers to lie on the ground and people to trace their outlines. The more the better! Meet at You Me Gallery, 330 James St. North, Aug 11, 7 pm. The “shadows” will be a powerful addition to Hamilton’s August 12th Art Crawl.
(Wear suitable clothing, chalk supplied, only an hour or so of your time!)
