Warner Hyde Sculpture Unveiled at U.S. Naval Museum

In 2009, Assistant Professor of Art Warner Hyde was selected from a national juried pool of artist and was commissioned to create a large ceramic sculpture for the U.S. Navy. The work, which commemorates all nuclear submariners involved in the Cold War, was unveiled on August 12, 2010.

Hyde traveled to Groton, Conn., to the U.S. Naval and Submarine Museum for the presentation and unveiling of the sculpture. Approximately 500 people attended the ceremony, including top admirals from the U.S. Navy, Russian Navy and from other nations. These officials were together for the first time for the event.

The sculpture will be on display at the U.S. Naval and Submarine Museum for a month before traveling to other sites around the world, visiting more than 60 countries.
