The Conception Memorial – on Sept. 2, 2019, the diving boat Conception caught fire, burned and sank on a diving expedition. 34 people lost their lives that night. The Conception is based in our harbor so the city commissioned a bronze plaque in memory of those lost. With input from the city, we developed 2D artwork and an artisan created sculpted 3D bas-relief. The plaque is finished in an hand applied verde patina. The plaque is mounted in a boulder on the harbor’s breakwater.
