The Making of The WWI Memorial Sculpture
Meet Sabin Howard, the classical figurative sculptor for the new National WWI Memorial in Washington DC.
The 58′ long, 38-figure, bronze sculpture tells the story of America’s role in World War I through the eyes of a father and his family.
It is called “A Soldier’s Journey” and to create it, the artist himself has gone through a transformative journey, blending his traditional figurative sculpting approach with powerful new 3D computer technologies.
In this one hour webinar, we will be exploring both journeys that are resulting in a brilliant new work of art to honor the American Experience and all those who served in WWI.
