    “Hot Spots: Radioactivity and the Landscape” uses art to make visible the impact of the nuclear industry on our surroundings. The exhibition opens at Krannert Art Museum on Oct. 17.

    Native American photographer Will Wilson made a composite image of himself, his daughter and his mother on the rim of the Grand Canyon in “AIR: Confluence of Three Generations.”
