Design Concepts for Phoenician Museum
Today Clark Schaffer finished his design concepts for the Phoenician Museum. We are so excited to share his illustrations.
Clark is a freelance artist who has a life-time of experience making models and sets for Hollywood. His work includes artistic support for the film productions of Ironman and Batman. Clark recently made set designs for the international television production of the 2022 Tabernacle Christmas Concert.
We are preparing to unveil an actual model of the Phoenician Museum at the New York Explorers Club on Tuesday, May 2nd.
Clark recognizes the importance of what Philip Beale has done. As a matter of fact, two months ago, Clark and Philip met each other to talk about the PHOENICIA and Philip’s expeditions around Africa and the crossing of the Atlantic. In those conversations, Clark had the chance to confirm the historic significance of what Philip has accomplished.
Clark wants to help create a place where the world will be able to see and feel the PHOENICIA in all its glory on the west bank of the Mississippi River.
Later this month members of our board and our friends in Carthage, Tunisia and Morocco will join Clark in a video conference when they will have a chance to give their opinions about the design renderings for the world’s oldest ship replica that crossed the Atlantic Ocean.
After more than a dozen people will have a chance to give their comments and direction, Clark will then prepare an actual model of the ship museum for an unveiling in Manhattan to international media and diplomatic leaders.
We are sure that the unveiling of the model of the Phoenician Ship Museum will get the attention of millions of people and will help us raise millions of dollars that we will need to build a suitable home for an artifact that rewrites the history of contacts between the Old and New Worlds.
