The Charles W. Morgan

The Charles W. Morgan in Scaffolding. Mystic Seaport, CT. Pen and Ink, 2011

Meet the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden American whaling ship in existence. It is under the restoration at the Mystic Seaport, CT. Artists from the Dalvero Academy, myself included, have been recording the restoration process over the past 3 years, in both analog and digital artistic formats. Here's a pen-and-ink (analog) drawing of the ship's rudder in scaffolding from 2011. In less than 2 months, we will be ready to open doors to our group exhibit at the Museum of America and the Sea at Mystic Seaport,  CT, where our diverse art works will offer interpretations of the whaling legacy and history of America.
