Together with Alcatraz Cruises, Hyatt Regency Santa Clara is extending the “Alcatraz: Life on the Rock” and “Alcatraz: The Last Day” exhibits through mid-July 2014. The 3,000 square foot “Alcatraz: Life on the Rock” exhibit is complemented by the “Alcatraz: The Last Day” photo exhibition, a collection by Life Magazine photographer Leigh Wiener.


Free and open to the public (24 hours/day, seven days/week), these comprehensive exhibits are an ideal way for families, students and visitors alike to get a real feel for the history of and the fascination with Alcatraz. For more online information, visit http://www.alcatrazcruises.com/exhibit/index.html.


According to Hyatt Regency Santa Clara General Manager Dania Duke, “Our partnership with Alcatraz Cruises has been a great benefit to our guests.” Duke continues, “While the exhibit has intrigued many locals, ‘Alcatraz: Life on the Rock’ has also been a special attraction for hotel guests and convention center visitors as well.”


In addition to the two exhibits, the hotel’s Evolutions Bar is also featuring specialty Alcatraz-themed cocktails, including: The Jail Break, Drop the Anchor and the Prison Guard. Menu items are also available and include: The Birdman of Alcatraz’s Chicken Wings, Frank Morris’ Great Escape Fish ‘n Chips, Al Capone’s Hot Temper (Onion) Rings and The Rock (rock shrimp crostini).


“Alcatraz: Life on the Rock”
“Alcatraz: Life on the Rock” is an exhibit that 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.”


“Alcatraz: The Last Day”
Upon the announcement of the Alcatraz Penitentiary closure in 1963, Life Magazine called upon California-based photographer Leigh Wiener to document the momentous occasion. While Wiener had a large lay-out in the 1963 issue of Life Magazine, many of Wiener’s 300+ photographs that were captured on March 21, 1963 remained unpublished, filed away in his archive, until they were revealed 45 years later. In 2008, while inventorying his late father's photographic legacy of nearly 1/2 a million proof sheets and negatives, Devik Wiener would discover this treasure trove of images taken on the closing day of Alcatraz. Twenty five of these images are now on display to complement the exhibit “Alcatraz: Life on the Rock.”
