2019 has been a BIG year for them.
A Soldier’s Journey
In late August, sculptor Sabin Howard moves his studio from the Bronx to Englewood, NJ to accommodate the “full size” sculpting of the 58 foot long, 38 character bronze relief sculpture called “A Soldier’s Journey”.
At this new facility, Sabin and his entire studio team are doing amazing work.
Memorial Design Approved
In a major project milestone, the final Memorial design is unanimously approved by the US Commission of Fine arts (CFA) after a presentation on Sept. 18, 2019. The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) also approved the final design in early October, clearing the way for the project to seek construction permits from the Department of the Interior and the supervising National Park Service.
