News: Eugene Daub to Design the GCA’s National Photography Medal

 

June 11, 2019

Famed medal artist and sculptor Eugene Daub has been commissioned to design the newest GCA national medal – The Garden Club of America Photography Medal. Mr. Daub is a nationally recognized artist and the recipient of major national awards for excellence in medallic art. He is best known for his portraits and figurative monument sculpture created in the classic heroic style.

His sculpture of the civil rights pioneer, Rosa Parks, was unveiled in 2013 in the U.S. States Capitol National Statuary Hall. The statue is the first full-length statue of an African-American in the U.S. Capitol and the first statue commissioned by Congress since 1873. 

The GCA’s photography medal will “recognize outstanding achievement and creative vision in the field of photography and/or photography education.” By acknowledging exceptional work in the field of photography, the GCA “aims to stimulate and promote the knowledge of plants, love of gardening, the natural environment and the value of visual archives,” said DeLane Porter, chairman of the GCA national Awards Committee.
