Holding What Can’t Be Held @ Ming Studios
Aug 9 @ 7:00 pm – Sep 29 @ 10:00 pm

Third Annual Exhibition Holding What Can’t Be Held at MING Studios

Opening Event: August 9th, 7pm at MING studios

Exhibition Runs: August 9th – September 29th

In 2017, with the help of nuclear watchdog group the Snake River Alliance, ten local and international artists toured the radioactive ‘clean-up’ sites at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). They watched the exhumation of plutonium contaminated waste that was buried sixty years ago in unlined pits directly above the Snake River Aquifer, the sole source of drinking water for 300,000 Idahoans.

Now, after one year of processing, the artists are presenting their work: a continuing chronicle of the nuclear age and its impossible conundrums, such as how to deal with substances whose radioactivity will outlast any container that we could make to hold it.

This year’s artists are: Kate Walker, Shawn Edrington, Kirsten Furlong, Marc Herbst, Caroline Earley, William Lewis, Rachel Reichert, Karl LeClair, Amy O’Brien and Tim Andreae.

Idaho National Lab Tour @ Idaho National Lab
Aug 16 all-day

Save the date for our next INL tour! 

Learn about the nuclear waste dumped in Idaho by the government and what INL is doing to clean up the plutonium contamination that sits over Idaho’s largest fresh water aquifer.

The tour lasts most of the day as there is a lot of ground to cover and it will probably be fairly hot on the high desert outside of Arco, ID, but it will change your life forever.

If you are interested and/or would like to learn more, please contact Beatrice at bbrailsford@snakeriveralliance.org.
