This is the catalog from the 1988 exhibit of the same name at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, on the occasion of the College awarding honorary degrees to the Marukis

These paintings are their response to what they saw in Hiroshima when they arrived a few days after the bombing to succour the victims. But they also paint responses to Auschwitz, to Okinawa.

Also contained herein are comments by literary figures such as Denise Levertov, Leon Golub, Kenzaburo Oe and others from the symposium on art and engagement also held at this time, and short essays on the art of the Marukis.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

As August 6 is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, I plan to leave this by Henry Moore's Nuclear Energy sculpture, on Ellis Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets.

This is near the site of the first self-sustaining, controlled nuclear chain reaction, which occurred in a squash court under the bleachers of the now-demolished Stagg Field. (Regenstein Library is there now.)
