Robert Arneson is perhaps best known for his work in ceramic, but in the 1980s he produced some of his most powerful work in bronze.  'Nuke News', a witty if gruesome commentary on nuclear war, is inscribed with the names of the physicists responsible for creating the atom bomb as well as epithets, colloquial phrases and the nicknames of the bombs deployed over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
