National Air and Space Museum. Gehry has said he hopes to use
tapestries because they have been used historically to tell
stories. Images for the tapestries have not been determined.
Eisenhower grew up in Kansas and commanded Allied Forces in
World War II.
Planning for the Eisenhower memorial began more than a decade
