Exhibit - "Alcatraz: The Last Day"

Date & Time
Everyday from 02/28/2017 to 08/06/2017

A large format photography exhibit, "Alcatraz: The Last Day," will run through August 2017 in the New Industries Building of Alcatraz Island.

Leigh's powerful banner size photos capture in stark black and white the intensity and emotion as the prison closed for good and the last remaining prisoners were escorted away on March 21, 1963.

Leigh's renowned photography career spanned 50 years during which he photographed countless artists, celebrities and Heads of State.

The Alcatraz images were donated to the park by Leigh's son Devik Wiener.

There is no extra charge to see this exhibit, but hours are limited based on daily staffing and schedules. Please ask on the island dock for information about visiting the exhibit.
