Smithsonian Magazine article: An Exclusive Preview of the New World War I Memorial

On September 13, 2024, the WWI Centennial Commission will unveil A Soldier’s Journey, a 58.5-foot long bronze sculptural wall, years in the making, to serve as the centerpiece of the National WWI Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue.

We will be joined by Meredith S. Carr, Deputy Director for the WWl Centennial Commission, who will give us a behind the scenes look into how the WWl Memorial sculpture came to be & its final unveiling.

Once installed, A Soldier’s Journey will be the largest free standing high relief bronze in the western hemisphere. Sculptor Sabin Howard and the WWl Memorial Design Team have been working on this project since January 2016.

Read more about the memorial through this link and through Sculptor Sabin Howard’s website linked here.
