Oregon PSR is excited to host this thought-provoking collection of Hanford-related visual art, poetry, essays, scientific literature, and historical artifacts as it comes to Oregon for the first time. Particles on the Wall was created in 2010 by its curators: Dianne Dickeman, Nancy Dickeman and Steven Gilbert. Collaborating with Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders, the exhibit has been shown in nine communities throughout the state of Washington. The exhibit will include new contributions from Oregon artists including Tiel Aisha Ansari, the 13 Hats collective, Leah Stenson, David Hedges, and Scott T. Starbuck.
