The Anti-Nuclear War Head was first launched on June 12, 1982 in New York’s Central Park, site of the largest rally (one million people!) against nuclear weapons to date. Now, nearly a generation later, Trast Howard and Keiko Yanagida are bringing them back. Trast, former director of the Contemporary Art Institute in Sapporo, Japan, says: “Some art is of its time and some art is ahead of its time. When Keiko and I first saw the Anti-Nuclear War Head we knew immediately that it had a lot more good to do in this world.” Watch this phenomenal 45-second photo essay about the meaning behind the Anti-Nuclear War Head.
As timeless guardians of peace, Anti-Nuclear War Heads represent a commitment to a world free from nuclear threats. You can help PSR-LA re-launch this compelling yet elegant symbol of the anti-nuclear movement by purchasing an Anti-Nuclear War Head for yourself and as a unique, meaningful gift this holiday season. A portion of the proceeds from every sculpture sold will benefit PSR-LA.
We hope you can join us for the exciting re-launching of the Anti-Nuclear War Heads and help us celebrate PSR-LA’s 30th anniversary year in the Biltmore’s gorgeous Board Room suite. Meet PSR-LA members and staff, learn about recent accomplishments and enjoy hors d’ oeuvers, billiards, no-host bar, and live music by the Richard Faugno Jazz Trio. On top of all that, it’s executive director Martha Dina Arguello’s birthday too!
We look forward to seeing you there. Click here to let us know you’ll be joining us!
