Screen Shot 2021-11-27 at 11.11.26 AMScreen Shot 2021-11-27 at 11.11.26 AM The new Eisenhower Memorial like every public artwork saw its share of controversy with the renowned architect Frank Gehry flipping off Senators, giving public lectures on his point of view and on the other side,  the aggrieved Eisenhower family trying to change the plans.   I have no idea what the beef was but the Memorial fits nicely in the new edition.  My first campaign pin said "I like Ike".  It still rings a bell. 

I am fond of the images and happy I include the Capitol in the bottom right image.  The statue of Eisenhower as a youth (top of page) is worth the visit alone as it is one of the most beautiful and romanticized sculptures I have seen.
