“The Soldier’s and the Artist’s Journey”
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.

Short Documentary Bonus

"Selling WWI" documentary

100 years ago, President Woodrow Wilson understood that he not only needed to mobilize a vast new army, but he also needed to “SELL THE WAR” to the American People.

He needed America to “buy into” the “War Effort” AND he needed Americans to literally “buy into” the war with cash – by buying WAR BONDS.

This fascinating 6 minute documentary tells the story about how the Wilson Administration got the American People on board.
