Hiroshima - College Place - plaque

Erection date: /5/1988

Inscription

"Only shadows were left" said a survivor of Hiroshima in 1945.
This mural was created as a symbol of hope for a future of peace and a nuclear-free world.
Paul Donnelly & Geoff Staden

We believe this plaque was erected in 1985, the 40th anniversary of Hiroshima, as part of the international Shadow Project. Disappointingly we cannot find an image of the mural to which the plaque refers.

We found Donnelly and Staden in the list of artists at a 1983 art exhibition at the South London Gallery of work by 10 artists from SPACE studios in Deptford.

2022: Staden contacted us - see our page for the mural.
