On the occasion of the unveiling of Nuclear Energy, the monumental bronze sculpture created by Henry Moore for the University of Chicago to commemorate the first nuclear chain reaction, this exhibition of Mr. Moore's sculpture and drawings was assembled to honor the sculptor. It came entirely from collections in Chicago and vicinity and was organized by Joseph Randall Shapiro for The Renaissance Society and the Committee for the 25th Anniversary Observance of the First Nuclear Chain Reaction.

The exhibition was held at The Renaissance Society and the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration Building, 969 East 60th St.
