Storm of 1900, Galveston Isle

In memory of the 6000 victims lost at sea during the Galveston hurricane of September 8, 1900, artist David Moore created this memorial. The monument was dedicated in Sept, 2000; the work represents the suffering of the victims and the strength of the survivors who stayed to rebuild the city.

The 10-ft bronze sculpture portrays a family - a father, mother and child - clinging together.
