LET US DESIGN A CUSTOM WAR MEMORIAL FOR YOUR PROJECT!
A war memorial offers the community a place of reverence and rememberence in the wake of great sacrifice. Our team of fine art designers holds great respect for this, and we are experienced in creating art bronzes that communicate emotion and meaning to the viewer.
We have created large scale war memorials in both free-standing monuments and sculptural reliefs. Our war memorials are featured in the Veterans Memorial Park and Museum in Tampa, Florida. Through direct and genuine collaboration with our clients, we create memorials that achieve both a universal expression of emotion and sense of unique and specific relevance for the community.

TAMPA FLORIDA WAR MEMORIAL
Betz Art Foundry was commisssioned to create a Battle Cross, Bronze War Memorial Sculpture for the Veterans Memorial Park and Musuem in Tampa Florida.
"We are very excited about being involved in this project because it has a lot of meaning to us and the veterans involved," said sculptor and owner, Lori Betz. "I started working on this project by first doing a rough sketch for the committee involved in planning for the park." Once the committee approved the sketch Betz started work on the “maquette” for the sculpture. The maquette is a small version of what the original will look like made out of wax. Betz traveled to Tampa and had the maquette approved. After this interactive collaboration with the committe, Betz completed the monumental sculpture.
HELPING A HERO NATIONAL GALA
Lori Betz created and donated this bronze sculpture, Battle Cross, to the Helping a Hero National Gala. Helping a Hero is a non-profit organization that fosters support for military personnel that have been wounded in service. The Gala was a spectacular fundraising event that raised over $3 million to build specially-adapted homes for wounded soldiers. The November 2012 National Gala featured George W. Bush as a Patriot Award winner. In addtion, a silent auction was held and this sculpture was amount the items auctioned that evening. We were very honored to participate, said artist Lori Betz. "We are deeply in debted to our soilders and we were so happy that our participation helped provide homes for our heros. It was our way to thank them."
