Washington, DC: Thomas Jefferson Memorial By Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, 2018
- Washington, DC: Thomas Jefferson Memorial
The inscription on the Thomas Jefferson Memorial reads, “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” This memorial is the gem of the National Mall. It was built in 1939 under the guidance of President Franklin Roosevelt himself. The memorial features several inscriptions, quotes from Jefferson’s work on peace, freedom, and the basic rights of man. Inspired by the memorial, Anderson Design Group artists created vintage travel poster art of the memorial, a peaceful, mid-century-styled depiction of the memorial and what it represents. Now you can take a piece of D.C. history home with you with this retro artwork as a framed print, canvas banner, metal sign, or as a set of notecards or postcards.
