Atomic Museum Hosting Art Show
Friday, September 20, 2013 - 02:35 Updated 11 weeks ago
Atomic Overlook is a series of photomontages that blend 1950's atmospheric atomic bomb tests with 21st Century tourism. On the surface the series seeks to remind us of the ongoing nuclear threat, yet exploring deeper one finds how, today, with the constant bombardment of media and our online 24/7 life, we might see an atmospheric atomic bomb test. The dark humor expressed in Lipsky's work layers social issues of today with the ultimate Cold War symbol, an atomic bomb.
Lipsky, raised in Arizona during the height of the Cold War, felt that the black and white images so frequently seen of atomic mushroom clouds needed to be re-contextualized in order to keep the reality of our post-atomic era fresh and omnipresent. Atomic Overlook is the result of his vision.
The National Atomic Testing Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 am until 5:00 pm and from 12:00 pm until 5:00 pm on Sundays. We are located at 755 E. Flamingo Road in Las Vegas, NV. Find art in unexpected places.
