March Final Friday

Hard Rain
 Living with Bombs in Laos
Opening Final Friday, March 28, 5-9 pm

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

The show will open with a blessing and prayer for peace by the monks of the Lao Buddhist Association of Olathe Ks. at 6:00 pm on March 28.

The Lawrence Percolator is located behind 913 Rhode Island, in the Alley just east of the Lawrence Arts Center. All are invited and welcome!

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd be interested in a collaboration.
My blog covers a lot of interesting and helpful posts just like yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. And also, I think you'll love my recent blog post titled Be Brave! Never Be Afraid Of Speaking Out

I'm hoping to hear from you too and quickly, you've got a great blog here.

Daniel.
