Letter

Dear Mr. Whitesell:

In its meeting of 19 July, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the proposed design for the Memorial to the Victims of the Ukrainian Famine (Holodomor) of 1932–1933. The Commission approved the submission subject to review of the final design details, and delegated this review to the Commission staff.

The Commission members expressed appreciation for the development of the preferred competition alternative to create a cleaner and more focused design. They recommended refinement of details of the design, such as the treatment of the stone frame surrounding the bronze panel to avoid a heavy appearance, as well as stone and inscription details, as part of the project's final documentation. Please consult with the Commission staff for completion of this final review.

Sincerely,

/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
Secretary
