Civil War Lecture: Photo-modeling USS Monitor Artifacts

March 18 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Turret drained, with conservators

Photo-modeling USS Monitor Artifacts

Presented by Hannah Fleming, Coordinator, USS Monitor Center

Lecture begins at 2:30 PM

Civil War lectures are free with Museum admission, but reserving a seat is suggested as seating is limited. Reserve seats online –see each lecture below, or call (757) 591-7789 or email hfleming@MarinersMuseum.org.


Ever wonder what the turret looks like in 3D? Want to see details of buttons, bottles, and silverware without a magnifying glass? Photo-modeling can help answer important questions while offering researchers and guests a new way to experience artifacts that would not be on display otherwise — because the artifact is undergoing conservation or because it is too fragile. Learn what data can be gathered and how Monitor artifacts can be shared digitally all over the world.
