Innovative Object Making and Visual Storytelling
Volume VI / October Newsletter

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.

President John F. Kennedy

The New National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center - in Columbus, GA

General (Ret.) Colin Powell addressed thousands of visitors at the inauguration of the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center on June 20th, 2009 in Columbus, Georgia, and called the museum, “the finest tribute to the American soldier anywhere”.

StudioEIS was privileged to participate in the project by sculpting 50 true-to-life figures representing eight different eras in the evolution of the U.S Infantry. The sculptures were designed to reflect the mission of the National Infantry Museum - to educate, honor and preserve. These installations dramatically and powerfully tell the stories of the sacrifice and courage made by Infantrymen and their families in service to our Nation - from The American Revolution to the current Desert Wars.

StudioEIS’ mission was to provide the highest quality product and services consistent with the studio’s 33 year history. Working closely with the support of the National Infantry Foundation and Christopher Chadbourne and Associates, StudioEIS cast the figures from life at Fort Benning and at our studio in Brooklyn, NY. The figures were then sculpted and finished by a team of designers, sculptors, painters, costumers and military history specialists.

"A highlight in the new National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center are the Soldier figures created by StudioEIS. These figures, located along the 100 yard ramp, are the faces of real Infantry Soldiers and bring to life the 235 year history of this nation and our Army. They are the centerpiece of the major icon in the museum."
Major General Jerry A. White, U.S. Army Retired
Chairman and President, The National Infantry Foundation

StudioEIS’ prominent history serves each and every project we do, but in the case of military history, the diligence required makes us first among equals. Our work honors the heritage of those who served, like a recent sculpture we made of a Tuskegee Airman, and those serving today to secure our future.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps
In 2006, The National Museum of the Marine Corps opened in Triangle, VA. In one of the most recognized and dramatic installations, StudioEIS’ seventy four authentic life like sculptures tell the story of the history of the Marine Corps. These sculptures, like the National Infantry Sculptures, convey a compelling story of valor & sacrifice, throughout America’s history from the 18th century to the present.

With unmatched expertise, StudioEIS is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the central role the military has played in American life. We are honored to help tell these stories!
