The genius of Erik Nitsche encompasses virtually the entire sphere of visual communications. Nitsche’s prodigious and globetrotting career spans nearly 60 years. His historic relationship with General Dynamics began in 1953 with the design of a series of three sets of posters dedicated to public perceptions of nuclear energy.
“Atoms for Peace” contains portions of several lithographic public-relations-oriented fine art print programs created for the General Dynamics Corp. in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The prints depict Nitsche’s interpretations of nuclear energy uses, modern technologies for the era, and feature posters created for promotion of nuclear energy in foreign countries, which are imprinted in the languages of those regions.
The “Atoms for Peace” exhibition consists of 15 30” X 55” framed artists posters and one framed unit with interpretive text and exhibit title.
