JN Muir Sculpture Gallery presents 'A Tribute To America's Soldiers'

Join the JN Muir Sculpture Studio/Gallery in July and at the First Friday Reception to pay tribute to those who have fought to preserve our nation's Freedom.

While Muir's sculptures range from historical to contemporary subjects, through a series of patriotic sculptures created such as "The American Pieta", "Band of Brothers", "Duty", "Cry Freedom", "Sons of Liberty", Cornerstones of Freedom", Let Freedom Ring -Lil Liberty", and "Athena's Prayer", he depicts the courage and sacrifice so many have made. The focus is not on war, but to honor man's courageous quest for Truth and Freedom. Muir states: "I have striven to design the elements of my patriotic sculptures into works that capture the courage and determination of brave men and women. Not as static sculptures, but as a dynamic statement about service to humanity".

Believing that Art is not a mirror to reflect reality, but a hammer to shape it", Muir champions the cause of Liberty through his art. He and his wife founded the Human Liberty ARTT (Artistic Responsibility To Truth) Foundation, a 501 ©3 non-profit organization based in Sedona, Arizona in 2005 to award Art Scholarships and help support art related activities. The foundation's first Art Scholarship went to a local Sedona High School Student and more recently to a University of Arizona Student. Its' mission statement is: To proclaim and promote Human Liberty through the Arts and Education, place sculptures and monuments to Courage, Hope and Freedom around the world, publish related books, and present "Human Liberty Awards."

A haven for sculpture collectors, join us at the working studio/gallery of Allegorical Sculptor, James Muir, to experience his poignant Expressions in Bronze. Located in the Heart of The Gallery District, Hozho Plaza.
