The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission has hired MWWPR to promote and handle media outreach for the memorial honoring the nation's 34th president that will be dedicated in Washington on May 8, the 75th anniversary of V-E Day.

Designed by noted architect Frank Gehry, the memorial is located in a four-acre park adjacent to the National Mall and across the street from the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum,

It will highlight Eisenhower's rise from humble beginnings in Abilene, KS, to Supreme Allied Commander in Europe to president of Columbia University to first NATO Commander to two-term US president.

Michelle Corrigan Rios, executive VP and managing director of MWWPR's DC office, said the firm is excited about telling the story of Eisenhower's "extraordinary legacy and the care and artistry through which it has been memorialized."
