Sunday-Afternoon-at-the-Museum | “Decommissioned Missile Silo Sites: Reminders of Our Past and Future” by Nate Hofer
September 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Following a short business meeting of the Kauffman Museum Association, World Peace Photo award winner Nate Hofer will discuss making photographs of decommissioned nuclear missile silos. Nate’s project included finding and traveling to the sites, talking with landowners, and considering why he takes the photos and whether he really is a legitimate photographer. This program is held in conjunction with the current special exhibition “The Magic of Things,” a collection of not often seen museum artifacts including a Nuclear Free Zone t-shirt from 1984 when North Newton, KS, officially became a Nuclear Free Zone.
