Blast Door Art

Blast Door ArtArt has a way of sneaking into unlikely places. Via DefenseTech.org, a really interesting read on nuclear missile launch facility blast door art: Blast-Door Art: Cave Paintings of the Nuclear Era

An American Air Force major got a grant from the American Department of Defense to photograph missile bunker art! The article pontificates on reasons and circumstances and throws in some interesting historical tidbits. But the art speaks for itself. Even if you're not interested in the article there's a slide show with 12 more images.

Though many of the images are black humour or jingoistic I find it comforting that the missile crews felt compelled to express themselves rather than conform to an olive drab world.
