Washington, DC has another new memorial! Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial encapsulates Eisenhower's legacy in a four-acre urban park at the base of Capitol Hill. The memorial features a one-of-a-kind stainless steel tapestry depicting beaches of D-Day, heroic-sized bronze sculptures, and stone bas reliefs. This memorial was many years in the planning and opened in September of this year.
Rich in design and symbolism, we are fortunate to have with us Victoria Tigwell, the Deputy Executive Director of the Eisenhower Memorial Commission, to tell us in depth about the planning, design and building of the memorial. Join us for this fascinating look into Washington’s newest memorial.Register for this Event
