Placed to commemorate a historic moment in time, the public or civic memorial may be designed to commemorate a battle, war or conflict, or to bring attention to another historic event of our times. Many times a church, or cemetery will desire to erect a feature memorial to bring attention to a religious figure. Both heroes and tragic events have been commemorated with a memorial tribute designed by the members of the AICA.
