View objects by this artist.


A Connecticut-based, German-born sculptor, Henry Kreis, designed the most notable feature of the monument: the large terra-cotta mural panel. Kreis’s highly stylized design depicts American troops raising the flag, and a series of flanking vignettes show regional scenes such as orange groves, cattle ranching, and water and power systems, to name a few. Kreis’s panels were fabricated by the legendary Gladding, McBean who produced innumerable architectural terra-cotta pieces since the 1930s.
