Date: April 01, 2016

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – When a national commission launched an international search for someone to design a U.S. World War I memorial in Washington, D.C., they had to look no further than Joe Weishaar, a 2013 University of Arkansas architecture alumnus. His design, “The Weight of Sacrifice,” will be located just yards from the White House grounds on Pennsylvania Avenue. It’s a life-changing project for Weishaar and adds to the legacy of the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design.
