Artist used photographs of our World War II Soldiers to start the poses and build armatures. Two Life Size Soldiers sculpted out of clay in two different poses then cast in bronze through the lost wax casting process and patina and sealant.
The Goal for the Commission was to show World War II Soldiers fighting on the Beaches showing action and emotion on the bodies and faces. The Goal of the Client was to create a Sculpture and site showing World War II Soldiers for an Eagle Scout Project that was installed in Carlisle at the War Museum at the War College.
The collaboration was between the Client, the Artist and the Foundry. The Client explained to the artist what pose and expression he wanted on the Soldiers along with the traditional clothing, weapons and elements to be added to the sculptures. ART Research then produced molds and cast the soldiers in bronze metal, applied Patina and Sealant and delivered and installed the Sculptures.
ART Research and ART Design Group was able to assist with contributing to this wonderful Community Project by donating the time for the artist to sculpt the two figures and the time to deliver and install the Sculptures. There was a dedication that included living WWII Veterans who attended and placed sand at the site of the Soldiers.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
