Congressional Medal of Honors

Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial

Indianapolis, IN

Along the bank of the Central Canal in White River State Park, this outdoor exhibit is the nation’s only memorial honoring recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor; the country’s highest award for military valor. The memorial is a collection of 27 curved glass walls each standing 7 to 10 feet high, grouped by conflict dating back to the Civil War. Etched into the glass are the names of 3,410 recipients, while a motion-activated audio system plays a 30 minute narrative highlighting some of the courageous acts of bravery. The memorial was a collaborative effort between Eric Fulford of  Ninebark Studios and Rowland Design. Rowland was responsible for the graphic components of this project.
