Museum & Buildings
Trails and Grounds open daily sunrise to sunset.
A Soldier’s Journey is a study for a monumental bronze by Sabin Howard. In 2024, the finished piece measuring 58 feet wide will be the centerpiece, completing the new World War I Monument in Washington, DC.
University of Arkansas graduate Joe Weishaar won the World War I Monument design competition when he was just 25 years old. His concept, “The Weight of Sacrifice,” incorporates two sculptures, landscape elements, and a reflecting pool.

Many American artists documented their experience of World War I, participating as soldiers, relief workers, and official war artists. More than 100 years later, Howard uses art to convey the courage and sacrifice of American soldiers and the horrors of war.
