March Final Friday

Hard Rain
 Living with Bombs in Laos
Opening Final Friday, March 28, 5-9 pm

One plane load of Bombs, every 8 minutes, 24 hours a day..... for 9 years. This is what rained down on the small Southeast Asian country of Laos, mostly in secret, during the time of the American involvement in the Vietnam war.  Approximately 1/3 of these bombs failed to explode upon impact, & today, over 40 years since the end of the war, they continue to maim and kill people.

Hard Rain is an exhibit of photos, prints, textiles, artifacts, posters, historic and contemporary, exploring the continued unexploded ordnance contamination of Laos. Included are items on loan from the Legacies of War foundation.  Legacies of War was founded with the mission to advocate for UXO clearance, to raise awareness, provide a space for healing and create hope for peace.

The show will open with a blessing and prayer for peace by the monks of the Lao Buddhist Association of Olathe Ks. at 6:00 pm on March 28.

The Lawrence Percolator is located behind 913 Rhode Island, in the Alley just east of the Lawrence Arts Center. All are invited and welcome!

SNIPE HUNT: December Final Friday

If you haven't seen the SNIPE HUNT and her cast of elusive characters, now's your chance.
Final Friday, December 27, 5-9 pm

Using cryptozoology as an allegory for legendary individuals, animals and the act of story-telling, this exibition will be a celebration of cryptids, whose existence is often passed down through oral tradition, stories that are embellished, can't be authenticated, or are just too weird to be believed (or denied).

For this exhibition, artists Kent Smith and Matthew Lord have collected numerous reports of legendary beasts, enigmatic people and strange happenings from writers and community contributors. These stories are the source material for original pieces of art showcased in the SNIPE HUNT exhibition.

SNIPE HUNT will close Saturday, January 18.
