Hole in the Head: Birth of the Environmental Movement

November 1, 2014 - February 8, 2015

 

Exhibit 2014- Hole In Head


An exhibition about Sonoma County’s environmental legacy, focusing on two historic battles: the fight over a nuclear power plant at Bodega Head (the initial phase of plant’s construction was nicknamed “the Hole in the Head”) and the struggle over public access to the coastline in the 1960s. It is approaching fifty years beyond these early examples of environmental activism, and it is the Museum’s goal to collect video and audio stories from the individuals involved in these struggles to incorporate into an exhibition. The project will include an in-gallery exhibition featuring text, photographs, artifacts and multimedia—mostly in the form of edited video interviews. The interviews will include new video collected for this project, as well as edited segments from a rich collection of existing video histories in SCM’s collection.  In addition, the project will include a web-based virtual exhibition with images, maps, text and video clips that will broaden the reach of the gallery exhibition, allowing it to live on beyond its existence in the gallery and linking the project to more contemporary issues.
