“Alcatraz: Life on the Rock” is on exhibit every day until October 25, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco’s atrium lobby.
The exhibit showcases Alcatraz Island’s fascinating history and infamous inmates. Specific installations include “How Do You Know Alcatraz?” which offers a compelling introduction, complete with a model of the island and a look at The Rock’s place in history and in movies. Additionally, there are four quadrants that feature the following: a “Military History,” an authentic replica of a prison cell that is the centerpiece of the “Life on the Inside,” “Strength: The Native American Indian Occupation,” and “Preserving the Rock.”
The 3,000 square foot display also showcases “Alcatraz: The Last Day” photo exhibition, a never before seen collection by Life Magazine photographer Leigh Wiener. Additionally, the hotel’s Eclipse Restaurant offers a commemorative menu from “The Rock.”
