The Chain Reaction Sculpture or the Anti Nuke Sculpture is a peace monument and public art sculpture made up of stainless steel and fibreglass surrounded by concrete. The sculpture shows a mushroom cloud created by a nuclear explosion. Designed by cartoonist Paul Conrad and built by Peter M. Carlson, the 5.5-ton, 8-meter (26-foot) high sculpture was installed in 1991. An inscription at the base of the sculpture reads, "This is a statement of peace. May it never become an epitaph." The theme of the sculpture is nuclear disarmament.

Anti Nuke Sculpture Reviews & Ratings
This sculpture is very pretty and huge one. The chains are connected by the base of this sculpture. The metal on the sun make it a little more brighter It also shows a black, dark and a ominous feeling too it . Located on Main St. near the Civic Auditorium.
This very powerful, very menacing sculpture is quite large, and conveys a strong sense of unease and weight. Beautifully constructed to look like an mushroom cloud explosion built from massive chains, it's dark, ominous, and engaging. It's location is great for photography, you can get very close to it, and don't have to take a picture from across the street.
Visible statue art: Explosive mushroom cloud of chains.
