    Lanesboro Arts is honored to present “From War to Reconciliation,” a historical exhibition documenting the cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima before, during and after atomic bombs were dropped, ending the war in the Pacific. The exhibit is part of the “In Peace, With Honor” program and will open with a reception in the Lobby & Upper Level of the St. Mane Theatre on Thursday, September 21, 2017, from 6-8 p.m. in conjunction with “Return of Sword.” The exhibit will conclude with a closing reception in the Lobby of the St. Mane Theatre on Saturday, September 30 from 6 – 9 p.m. in conjunction with a screening of a documentary film that tells the story of “Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard.” The exhibit will also be available for viewing on 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. September 21 – 23 & 28 – 30 in the St. Mane Theatre Upper Level. The exhibit was developed by the Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for Atomic Bomb Victims and is presented in Lanesboro on loan from the Saint Paul-Nagasaki Sister City Committee.

    The exhibit includes 47 posters that tell the difficult history of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the closing days of World War II. From the atomic blast, to survival, to recovery, to a call from the elimination of nuclear weapons, this exhibition will remind all who visit that the world must never again experience nuclear war.
