A series of photos, along with a video installation and other works that comment on the human and ecological impact of nuclear detonations will be featured in Gabriel Martinez' exhibit, "Mountain War Time." Organized to coincide with the Brown Arts Initiative’s three-year thematic focus on “Arts and Environment,” the exhibition by Martinez focuses on Trinity, the site near Alamogordo, New Mexico, where the first atomic weapon was detonated in 1945. The images featured are a reference to the mysterious series of spots that appeared in batches of x-rays in 1945, which later became an accidental record to the scope of first fallout zone. Martinez’ exhibition includes a video of the recollections of Henry Herrera, a civilian who lived downwind from the Trinity site. The exhibition will be on display through May 28 in the List Art Center lobby, 64 College St. Exhibition hours are Monday-Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursdays from 1-9 p.m., and weekends from 1-4 p.m. For more information, call 401-863-2932.
