“Officials of the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission, which approved his team's design on an 8-1 vote, said Weishaar's decision to include on his team Sabin Howard, an experienced classical sculptor from New York City, was pivotal to the win. The commission voted after an independent jury of seven experts earlier this month unanimously picked the team's design.”

The Washington Post
The New York Times
Sabin Howard, a sculptor of immense talent, has created some of the last decade’s most substantive realistic sculpture. When viewing his works, visitors may be reminded of the time when Donatello and Rodin walked the earth...
The New York Times, April 28, 2002
The New Criterion
Sabin Howard is a sculptor whose work radiates a startling presence while finding its roots in the classical past. ...Howard mixes Roman gods with abstract forms and sees himself as a new kind of Renaissance figure—the artist-businessman with his own Medici clients. His bronze sculptures exert an outward pressure against their own metal skin, textured in pointillist marks. Formally and technically, the work is wonderfully compelling.
James Panero, The New Criterion, May 2007
Fine Art Connoisseur
Many sculptors revere the Italian Renaissance, but few are as effective as Sabin Howard (b. 1963) in channeling that era while remaining grounded in our own time. His large bronze figures constitute a paradox that succeeds brilliantly: Sumptuously crafted yet stream-lined in design, dynamic in composition yet serene in mood.
Fine Art Connoisseur, December 2008
American Arts Quarterly
Hermes...is a remarkable work of art... Over the years he [Howard] has developed a remarkable series of anatomical drawings.... Howard's sculptures have content as well as exquisite form. All art is about art, even with a recognizable subject, and Howard clearly states the importance of Michelangelo to him. ARMOR engages our emotions as well as our sensory appreciation. The viewer's attention is riveted....
James Cooper, American Arts Quarterly, Spring 2005
American Art Collector
Themes of transcendence and the art of possibility resonate in Howard's graceful yet powerful figurative masterpieces.
American Art Collector, November, 2010
