The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial

The site plan drawing shows that the memorial spans the blocks between 4th and 6th Streets SW near the intersection of Maryland and Independence Avenues SW, just off the National Mall.

There are three sculptural elements to the memorial: a bas relief depicting President Eisenhower (at left, with text from his farewell address); a sculpture depicting young Eisenhower (center, with text from his homecoming address); and a bas relief of General Eisenhower (right, with text from the Guildwall Address of 1945).

This overhead rendering shows the three woven metal tapestries that frame the sculptural elements of the memorial.
