The Waterfront Museum & Barge 100 present
Land in Sea - works by Stephen Mallon - a one-man show
July 26 to October 18, 2014
Artist Reception: Saturday, September 6, 2 - 4 pm.
The Waterfront Museum is pleased to present Land In Sea, featuring select large scale photographs by artist Stephen Mallon. The show's focus is work from Mallon's two powerful series "Brace for Impact" and "American Reclamation". "Brace for Impact: The Salvage of Flight 1549" features Mallon's sizeable photographs documenting the recovery by maritime contractor Weeks Marine of Flight 1549, the plane piloted by Sully Sullenberger III who successfully emergency-landed in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009 after a collision with a flock of geese resulted in both engines failing and saving all 155 people aboard. The other is “American Reclamation: Next Stop Atlantic”. NYC's MTA joined the artificial reef-building program off the east coast of the U.S. in 2000. Mallon documents the progress of the train cars on their destination out to sea from 2008 to 2011.
The Waterfront Museum was founded in 1986 to provide programs in education and culture aboard an historic vessel and advocate for and expand public waterfront access in a NY Metropolitan area. The museum relocated to Red Hook, Brooklyn in 1994 as a permanent homeport after operating in Liberty State Park in Jersey City & Hoboken, NJ; Piermont, NY; South Street Seaport, NYC. The museum's permanent collection includes a nearly one-century old wooden barge, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
