Philadelphia Sculptors in collaboration with the Independent Seaport Museum in Philadelphia curated an exhibition intersecting art with the oldest historic US Naval vessel afloat on the Delaware River, the USS Olympia, 1895.  Thanks to Leslie Kaufman's vision and tireless efforts that made this happen, to Watsuki Harrington, assistant Director, and special thanks to Kevin Smith (Ship's Educator and historian) and Pat Weeks (ship's educator and historic food enthusiast).
