Eisenhower Memorial Dedication Postponed

What's on Washington


Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Eisenhower Memorial encapsulates Eisenhower’s legacy in a four-acre urban park at the base of Capitol Hill along Independence Avenue SW.

Gehry’s unique vision is a grand new civic space in the heart of DC. It features a one-of-a-kind stainless-steel tapestry depicting beaches of D-Day, heroic-sized bronze sculptures, and stone bas reliefs. Visit anytime.

The dedication ceremony and associated events, originally scheduled on VE-Day in May, have been postponed until Thursday, Sept. 17, 1 p.m. eisenhowermemorial.gov.
