David Moser commissioned to create award statues for The Jackson Laboratory's National Council Awards
David Moser has been commissioned to design and create the awards that will be given to the recipients of The Jackson Laboratory's National Council Awards. Recipients will be chosen in categories including Distinguished Service, Philanthropy and Scientific Achievement. This is the second time that David Moser has been honored with the challenge of creating an award for The Jackson Laboratory. In 2008 Moser created the award given to the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Awards.
The ceremony and reception for the National Council Awards will take place at The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine on August 14, when recipients will be announced.
The design of this award utilizes two American hardwoods, Northern white ash and American black walnut, as well as sculpted elements in solid bronze cast at a local foundry.
"The Jackson Laboratory's mission is to enable research for the global community and advance the human condition," states David Moser. "I intended to represent the spirit of their mission and illustrate the unity of man on an abstract global sphere. Additionally, the National Council's mission to ‘Engage - Empower and Educate' is represented on a concentric ring. Using sculpture I aimed to represent these pursuits, echoing the ambitions of The Jackson Laboratory, the Council and the humanitarian achievements of the recipients."
The Jackson Laboratory is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution and National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center based in Bar Harbor, Maine, with a facility in Sacramento, California. Its mission is to discover the genetic basis for preventing, treating, and curing human diseases, and to enable research and education for the global biomedical community. In addition to being a research facility, it is an international hub for scientific courses, conferences, training, and education.
