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
founded with the mission to advocate for UXO clearance, to raise awareness,
provide a space for healing and create hope for peace.
