To mark the 75th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Japanese American National Museum in partnership with the two cities presents Under a Mushroom Cloud: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the Atomic Bomb on view November 9, 2019 through June 7, 2020.

A uranium bomb devastated Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and a plutonium bomb exploded over Nagasaki on August 9, the only cities to sustain mass destruction. Beyond the many dead, the survivors have endured physical and spiritual pain to this day. Japanese Americans then living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who survived are a part of this vital story. In addition to photographs, explanatory texts, and artifacts, Under a Mushroom Cloud includes contemporary art that provides an array of perspectives on the effects of the atomic bombs and their impact today. The exhibition sheds light on this painful history while creating a safe space for discussion with hopes that no person or country ever suffers from a reoccurrence.
