Sinking of the Sophia: Scenes from the Opera is a unique art exhibit featuring oil paintings by Dan Fruits which trace the story of the sinking of the SS Princess Sophia in 1918. The sinking of the SS Princess Sophia resulted in 350 lives lost and involved almost all of the city of Juneau in its aftermath. Historical SS Princess Sophia artifacts from the Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s permanent collection will accompany Fruit's paintings. In addition, Fruit’s paintings will become the back drop for an opera commemorating the centennial of this disaster. The opera will take place October 2018 in Juneau.
