Overview

A life size bronze military sculpture of a US Marine remembering our fallen brothers and sisters.

Goals

Fremont, Nebraska is known for displaying hundreds of casket flags around the town five times per year, a tradition since the 1970's. The town is wrapping up construction on a new Veterans Memorial Park along the same street that the flags are displayed. The 250 lb. bronze sculpture will be permanently installed at this new park on Memorial Day 2018 connecting the "Avenue of Flags" ceremonies with the Veterans park by paying respect to our fallen soldiers.

Process

I was asked to create a sculpture that would portray a soldier with a US flag to reflect on the cities unique Avenue of Flags ceremonies. I worked closely with my client creating concepts that would be a successful addition to the new park.
