The New York Academy of Art will be displaying the newly created 10-foot scale model of the memorial, reference photographs by Howard of reenactors, and drawings and sketched created for the sculpture. Howard took over 12,000 pictures of actors in authentic World War I uniforms and period costumes and developed a storyline for the memorial, ultimately creating a narrative entitled "A Soldier's Journey." The final memorial, when completed in Washington, D.C. will be 65 feet long, with 38 distinct figures and multiple tableaux, and will be the largest bronze sculpture of its kind in the world. This March exhibition will be the first chance the American public will have to view the models for its newest memorial.
Sabin Howard is an internationally renowned sculptor and draughtsman. He has participated in more than 50 groups and solo shows, and his sculptures and drawings have been collected by museums and private collectors all over the world. About his body of work, The New York Times wrote: "Sabin Howard, a sculptor of immense talent, has created some of the last decade's most substantive realistic sculptures. When viewing his works, visitors may be reminded of the time when Donatello and Rodin walked the earth." Sabin is the author of the "The Art of Life," a photoessay about figurative art through the ages. He received his MFA from the New York Academy of Arts in 1995 and has served as Visiting Critic and Adjunct Faculty of the Academy.
