The Steamship William G. Mather is a retired Great Lakes bulk freighter now restored as a museum ship docked at the Great Lakes Science Center. The Mather is one of four in the Great Lakes region. She transported cargo such as ore, coal, stone and grain to ports throughout the Great Lakes, and was nicknamed “The Ship That Built Cleveland” because Cleveland’s steel mills were a frequent destination. Built in 1925 by Great Lakes Engineering Works in Ecorse, Michigan, she was considered the latest word in ship design, propulsion, navigation equipment and crew accommodations. She was the flagship of The Cleveland-Cliffs Steamship Company fleet until 1952. Explore Mather from stem to stern and see its huge cargo holds, brass and oak pilot house, elegant guest quarters and four-story engine room.

During FRONT, Mather’s cargo hold will also host the film, Lottery of the Sea, by Allan Sekula (1951–2013), the prominent photographer, filmmaker and writer, whose work from the 1980s onward took the sea as a defining subject. Sekula’s work explores the effects of capitalism on our social structures, the workplace and the visual grammar of photography itself.
