The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will host the exhibition “Pictures from the Museum: A Visual Exploration of the Nuclear Age,” on display June 2 through October 5, 2018. This special exhibit, created by New Mexico Photographer Gregg Albracht, invites guests to visit the past through his 20 artistic images captured over multiple years at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, and rediscover the nuclear age through visual exploration.
“Pictures from the Museum” is a temporary exhibition where visitors will experience one the most pivotal times in human history – the Manhattan Project and Trinity Test – through the eyes of New Mexico Photographer, Gregg Albracht. This photography installation includes Albracht’s artistic representations of various exhibits seen throughout the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, such as the B-29 Superfortress, the Trinity Flag and Oppenheimer’s limousine, just to name a few.
Albracht has been a photographer since 1969 and sold his first photograph for $2.00 in 1970. His work is currently featured in the Charles Russell Museum and the NASA Art Collection. His photographs have been in 150 shows and exhibitions – including Art Expo New York 2016, where he was the first photographer chosen as a Featured Artist, and the United States Art In Embassies Program 2016-2018.
This exhibition will be open June 2 through October 5. “Pictures from the Museum: A Visual Exploration of the Nuclear Age” is included in the price of admission to the museum.
