Update on Paul Conrad’s iconic ‘Chain Reaction’

The Santa Monica arts commission decided to scrap it–but at the same time they gave it a bit of a reprieve.  Activists have 6 months to see if they can raise money to restore the sculpture of a mushroom cloud made from chain links… rather than let the city dismantle it (which they say is a far less costly endeavor.)

No-nukes activist and Santa Monica resident Jerry Rubin stands in front of the Conrad sculpture from 1991; he’s hoping to help raise money to save it.
