Ire Over Eisenhower Memorial Isn't Just About Tapestries

Over on Curbed National there are some juicy details about the peeved peeps at the National Civic Art Society and their objections to the Eisenhower Memorial planned for the Mall. They are getting ready to submit a "book-length" proposal to Congress listing their concerns with the proposed memorial, the way the competition for a designer was run, and with Frank Gehry himself. Above is their rendering of what the memorial will look like on American money, which isn't in the plans for the memorial (but it can't hurt to have a little fun).
