Ham Radio And The Arts: “Silent Key”

BCA logoSilent Key QSL pieceThe Boston Center for the Arts announces artist Cindy Bernard’s exhibition entitled “Silent Key”–“photographs and pigment prints inspired by the artist’s grandfather Bill Adam’s experience as a ham radio operator from 1923 until his death in 1999.” [Bill Adams was W6ANN.]

Bernard uses the “concept of sound as subject, exploring the communication between her grandfather and other ham operators across time and space.”
