Controversy over design of WWI memorial not going away as founder of Fine Arts commission objects

Despite a ceremonial groundbreaking in November 2017, progress has been slow on the planned WWI Memorial in Washington, D.C. Part of the delay is that the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) is still finding design issues with the approximately $35 million memorial. The location is also still under contention.

David Dejonge, founder of the WWI Memorial Effort in D.C. and president of the WWI Memorial Foundation, sent the CFA a letter on February 15, 2018, detailing his concerns with the WWI Centennial Commission’s (WWICC) plans to place the memorial in Pershing Park.
