This 1999 home movie captures Galveston artist David William Moore as he shows off his bronze creation, the 1900 Storm Memorial, to his family and friends. Moore, who passed away in 2001, preferred using children and animals as his subjects and primarily worked with terra cotta, wood, and metals. The piece featured in the film honors the victims and survivors of the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, in which more than 6,000 residents died. The statue resides on Seawall Boulevard, adjacent to the water.
