Eugene Daub is widely recognized in the American figurative-sculpture community as one of the great sculptors in the United States today. He has over 30 years of experience producing elegant art.
Daub is accomplished in all sculpture modes and in a wide range of art techniques. Major commissions include: Abraham Lincoln at his birthplace, Thomas Jefferson at the University of Virginia, A National Salute to the Military, the four monumental niche sculptures for the Rotunda of the Utah State Capitol, and an important monument for the U.S. Capitol (name withheld until unveiling this spring). Prior to forming Daub & Firmin Studios with Rob Firmin, he also created the U.S.S. San Diego monument, and two major monuments commemorating Lewis and Clark: the 18-foot tall Corps of Discovery in Kansas City, and the 17 by 8-foot bronze relief, now the centerpiece of the Montana State Senate chamber. Other recent commissions are the Peace Officers Memorial in Orange County, the Port of Los Angeles Police Headquarters lobby relief in glass and bronze, and three large commemorative reliefs in San Francisco International Airport.
Eugene’s awards include the J. Sanford Saltus Award and the American Numismatic Association Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Bas Relief Sculpture. In 2002 he was awarded the Arthur Ross Award for sculpture from the Institute for Classical Architecture and Classical America.
