On Redesigning Eisenhower Memorial could cost $17M

I usually like Gehry's creations, but I agree with the Eisenhower family on this one.

Having seen Gehry's work up close in downtown LA and hearing him speak, I am convinced that he is the wrong person to be involved in anything Eisenhower. President Eisenhower was a humble, well qualified man that understood the power of simple. Gehry has none of those qualities. HIs creations are all monuments to himself. They should fire him.

I suggest that they go back and hire Eugene Daub. He has done numerous memorials that glorify those being remembered not the artist. His WWII sculptures near the Midway museum in San Diego are fantastic. He is also the artist that designed the Lewis and Clark monument in KC (at Quality Hill), Rosa Parks statue in DC and many more.
