In consideration of public health, the Eisenhower Memorial dedication ceremony and associated events, originally scheduled on VE-Day in May, have been postponed until Thursday, Sept. 17, 1 p.m.

Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the memorial encapsulates Eisenhower’s legacy in a four-acre urban park at the base of Capitol Hill. Gehry’s unique vision is a grand new civic space in the heart of the nation’s capital. The memorial features a one-of-a-kind stainless steel tapestry depicting beaches of D-Day, heroic-sized bronze sculptures, and stone bas reliefs.

The memorial is located near Maryland Avenue on the plaza bounded by Maryland Avenue SW, Fourth Street SW, and Sixth Street SW.
