home Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow: Living With the Atomic Bomb, 1945-65

What:
For nearly half a century Americans coped with the possibility of atomic war as a regular part of their daily lives. Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow, a new exhibit by Kansas City-based ExhibitsUSA, looks at how everyday citizens responded to this threat.Mass merchandisers used atomic imagery to add excitement to products and packaging. Comic books, monster movies, and toy ray guns created an alternate set of coping mechanisms for a nation constantly under siege from messages of impending annihilation.
