First Friday at the City Museum: Oil Paintings by Dan Fruits
Join us at the City Museum on Friday, May 4th from 4:30-7:00 pm for an opening reception for "Sinking of the Sophia: Scenes from the Opera" by Dan Fruits. This event is free.
"Sinking of the Sophia: Scenes from the Opera" is a unique art exhibit featuring oil paintings by Dan Fruits which trace the story of the sinking of the SS Princess Sophia in 1918. The sinking of the SS Princess Sophia resulted in 350 lives lost and involved almost all of the city of Juneau in its aftermath. Fruit’s paintings will become the back drop for an opera commemorating the centennial of this disaster in October.
This exhibit will be on display through September 2018 and historical USS Princess Sophia artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection will accompany Dan Fruit's paintings.
