Production Description

Seeking talent for a new Smithsonian Institute museum exhibition detailing the lives of African Americans in the South before the Civil War. The museum will create three figures--a mother, father, and son--based on the talents' likenesses.

Manager states: "We are a professional sculpture studio that specializes in making figure sculptures for museums. To make the figures, we make a plaster mold of your body that is then used to make the final sculpture. Because of the sensitive subject matter, we want to make sure that all of the participants are aware of how the statues will be displayed and are comfortable with their likenesses being used for a project involving slavery. That being said, the museum is attempting to offer an honest portrayal of our country's past in order to give a voice to the untold thousands who were forced to endure such brutal and inhumane treatment. If any of the models would like more information before committing to the vetting process, I would be happy to speak with them."
