Stanley Design Group was retained by the South Dakota Army National Guard to design a statue base for the proposed minuteman statue to greet visitors and servicemen as they enter Camp Rapid from West Main Street.

This installation had four main design tasks: 

1. Locating and sighting the statue
2. Designing a statue base to an  appropriate height that the statue and base would fit into the overall context of the front gate and not appear “out of place”

3. Design an appropriate base that “fit in” with the historical context of the gate and fence
4. Construction should be less than $50,000.00 budgeted

Basic computer modeling and photo manipulations were utilized to recommend statue positioning and secure the National Guards final decision.
