Recently I came back from beautiful Wisconsin where I delivered three of my life size bronze sculptures to clients who are building a large veterans memorial along the Eau Claire river. I have been working with the foundation since late 2019 to create sculptures for the Wisconsin Veterans Memorial. This past week I finally got to see the site where it will all come together.
The Chippewa Valley Veterans Tribute is being created in Altoona, WI in several phases. Phase I will be dedicated Memorial Day 2021. The goal of the park is to honor those who have served in the United States military.
I met with the foundation members over dinner on Wednesday and got a tour of the site the following day. Later we temporarily installed the sculptures at a nearby veterans organizations. The sculptures are two Honor Guard sculptures, also known as Sentinels, and a Gold Star Mother with poppies. A “Red Arrow” Infantry Division soldier is depicted in the WWII Sentinel. The other Sentinel is a US Marine.
The three sculptures will be the first group of monuments permanently installed next spring 2021. Details in the coming months.
