Echoes of Building 123: Artists' Tribute

Visitors to Shipyard Open Studios often ask about the huge skeleton of a building they pass on the way to the Building 125 studios. This beautiful building was constructed in 1943 for the overhaul and storage of submarine and ship batteries. On January 23, 2024, the artists honored the building and those who once worked there with a ceremony. An online and gallery show of artwork created especially for the occasion closed March 31.

The U.S. Navy is now demolishing the building to enable removal of toxic chemicals buried beneath it. Demolition updates
