What does it take to design a national memorial to the Great War? Join us as sculptor Sabin Howard talks about the National WW1 Memorial, design principles, and art.

Sabin Howard grew up in New York City and in Torino, Italy. He studied art at the Philadelphia College of Art and then earned his MFA from the New York Academy of Art. For twenty years, he taught at the graduate and undergraduate levels. He has been elected to the board of the National Sculpture Society. He has received numerous commissions and has showed his work at more than fifty solo and group shows. 

After 45,000 hours of working from life models in the studio, he is the creator of three heroic scale pieces, HERMES, APHRODITE, and APOLLO, as well as many smaller pieces. His works are owned by museums and private collectors all over the world, and they have been favorably reviewed by The New York Times, American Artist, Fine Arts Connoisseur, American Arts Collector, and The New Criterion, as well as many other journals internationally. He is the author of the book THE ART OF LIFE with his wife author Traci L. Slatton.

Sabin Howard, along with architect Joe Weishaar, was selected as the winning design team for the National World War 1 Memorial in Pershing Sq. Park, Washington D.C.
