Underwater Art Gallery

In 2010, commercial and fine art photographer Andreas Franke visited the artificial reef of the sunken ship The Vandenburg, off the coast of Key West. After many dives, he created a portfolio of work positing what everyday life would be like on this wrecked ship, under water. These fantastical images make up the collection "The Vandenburg: Life Below the Surface." And the first venue to show these works is The Vandenburg itself! Currently, divers can suit up for a descent to 93 feet below the water's surface to see Franke's work encased in plexiglass and held onto the hull of the ship by ultra-strong magnets. The show closes January of 2012 and then will be exhibited on dry land.
