American Visionary: JFK’s Life and Times

More About American Visionary: JFK’s Life and Times

“American Visionary: JFK’s Life and Times” will open at Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center with an opening reception on Friday, January 10 from 5:30 to 8 pm.

The exhibit shows Kennedy as a joyful boy playing in the ocean and a troubled president working in the Oval Office, as a public figure adored by crowds and a father alone with his baby daughter. Jacqueline Kennedy is there, too – as a happy bride, an elegant first lady and a heartbroken widow.

The Kennedy exhibit will take viewers through his life in chronological order, beginning with a baby photo, and it returns to the starting point, so the final photo shows his widow, Jackie, going to his funeral. The exhibition, one of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled, brings together images from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Wiener Schiller Productions, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives.

Highlights of “American Visionary” include a 1953 photo booth snapshot of the Kennedy newlyweds, possibly taken on their honeymoon; a candid 1958 photograph of Kennedy playing with his baby daughter, Caroline, in her bassinet; a 1960 photograph of people peering at Kennedy through the window as he prepares for a campaign speech; a 1961 photograph of the First Couple and others heading to Kennedy’s inauguration ceremony, with the White House blanketed in snow, among others.
