U.S.S. Indianapolis Remembered 

click image ag_3.jpg

The U.S.S. Indianapolis was struck by a Japanese torpedo in 1945, capsizing the vessel and leaving 900 men adrift in the sea. It took three days and three nights for rescue to arrive and by that time, only 300 men had survived the sun, lack of water and shark-infested waters. Italian artist Simona Frillici has created a unique installation at the SpaceCamp Microgallery in Fountain Square to memorialize the event and the men involved. If you missed it on First Friday, make an appointment to see it. This is the last installation ever for the Microgallery.
