Nuclear Age Vintage Ads


The Workshop
October 11, 2013 - January 5,2014
Open: Thursday-Sunday, 12-5pm

Archivist and Librarian, Megan Prelinger, presents thirteen images from industrial advertising that relate to nuclear technology. The images date from between 1953 and 1963, a time of extremely rapid identity development for nuclear industries. Twelve out of these images are magazine advertisements that appeared in industrial trade journals; the last is the cover of an exhibit catalog. The advertisements were designed by artists and represent physics and the nuclear industry in graphically fascinating ways.
