This month the Omaha V.A. Hospital will commemorate the donation and permanent installation of a grouping of 5 bronze statues that represent each branch of US military service.
The grouping, donated in large part by New Century Art Guild, is already installed in the VA Lobby’s main entrance and represents all five branches of the US Military with 18” cast bronze likeness featuring current working uniform of servicemen and women holding a parade-rest position. The figures, modeled after actual servicemen and women, are displayed on a wood base that has a modern, yet classic appearance and features inset insignia that represent each branch of service.
The commemoration ceremony will be held at 1pm on Wednesday, February 17th in the Main Lobby of the Omaha VA at 4101 Woolworth Ave, Omaha, NE 68105.
Several completed maquettes (scale versions of larger sculptures)and virtual model images from the Living Liberty Monument and Sculpture Park will be unveiled Saturday, August 8th, 2015 at NCAG’s booth at the VA’s Golden Age Games at the Century Link Center in Omaha.
Some views of the proposed Sculpture Park and Welcome Center:
Construction will soon begin on Living Liberty Memorial and Sculpture Park, a monument to honor veterans and those that have made great contributions to life and liberty in America.
The centerpiece of the monument will be a fountain that honors all branches of the US military and will feature a plaza that contains soil from all 50 states. The monument will be dedicated to American servicemen and women that contributed to the defense of this nation and, most notably, those that have sacrificed their lives for our nation.
The Living Liberty – Veterans Memorial and Sculpture Park,when completed,will feature 25-30 life-size bronze figures and illusionistic murals depicting U.S. military men and women in action. A brick pathway will take visitors deep into battle scenes from America’s past wars and foreign engagements. The park will also exhibit portrait-busts of other important Americans that have promoted liberty in our nation’s history.
