StudioEIS' Ivan Schwartz

When building a museum focused on an era like that of the American Revolution, which occurred pre-photography, there is an immense challenge in displaying the humanity and emotional connection to that era. The answer for the Museum of the American Revolution? Life-cast figures and tableau scenes from StudioEIS. StudioEIS created more than 20 figures for the Museum, which are featured in tableau scenes—or recreated historical moments—one of the Museum’s signature storytelling techniques.  

Ivan Schwartz, founder and director of Brooklyn-based sculptural studio StudioEIS, joined the latest episode of the Museum's AmRev360 series, hosted by President & CEO Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, to discuss the process of bringing history to life through life-cast figures and how he found his way into the sculptural art world.

Ivan Schwartz is the founder and director of StudioEIS. He is a sculptor, painter, and designer, with a keen interest in American history and the use of sculpture in the development of our national symbols. He explores the possibilities of visual language as a storyteller. Learn more about StudioEIS' work and projects online at studioeis.com.

AmRev360 features lively conversations on the American Revolution from all angles between Stephenson and a broad slate of dynamic guests, including authors, actors, community leaders, and more. 

Go behind-the-scenes of the making of the tableau scene, made by StudioEIS, that was featured in the Museum's 2019-2020 special exhibition, Cost of Revolution: The Life and Death of an Irish Soldier.
