Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial, Washington, DC

MGAC was engaged by Clark Construction and provided project management services for art fabrication and installation of the $9M stainless steel woven and welded tapestry at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial. Located in Washington, DC, the 450’ wide by 90’ tall tapestry spans the length of the four-acre site on Independence Avenue. The 600 unique panels that comprise the tapestry panel are suspended and supported by an intricate cable net system.

The tapestry design and fabrication was performed by teams across the country with installation occurring in Washington, DC, structural engineering in Los Angeles and Seattle, and fabrication in Los Angeles, Memphis, and Germany. With various funding and approval issues, the project broke ground in late 2017. This project is nearly two decades in the making.
