Divers off the coast of Florida can now visit an underwater art museum. Divers finished placing a series of artworks on a sunken ship Saturday about seven miles south of Key West in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The project consists of 24 large photo illustrations created by Austrian artist Andreas Franke. They were placed on the Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, a former U.S. Air Force missile tracking ship that was intentionally sunk 10 years ago to create an artificial reef. Franke calls it the “Plastic Ocean Project” and said he wants it to draw attention to the need to eliminate plastics in the world’s oceans. Amanda Eller, a Maryland native who had been missing for 17 days in a Hawaii forest, was found alive. News4’s Aimee Cho has more.
