Submerged NC: The Art of USS Monitor
December 6, 2022 at 8am Hawaiʻi / 10 am Pacific / 12 pm Central / 1 pm Eastern
Witness the power and drama of USS Monitor's story, the iconic battle, its sinking, and its recovery as told through a selection of artworks from the collection of The Mariners' Museum and Park. The story of "the little ship that saved the nation"; is a powerful one that has captured the fascination of millions both during its short, revolutionary life and in its legendary rest after its sinking. Its multifaceted story is one of technology, innovation, people, power, loss, and discovery and is one that has inspired many artists in the 160 years since its launching.
Join Kyra Duffley, creator and host of The Mariners' Museum's monthly art series, Beyond the Frame, as we take an interpretive look at these paintings that bring history to life in a new way! We'll examine the stylistic choices the artists made in their works and how those work together to each tell a part of USS Monitor's story in its own unique and inspired way.
