Kaiserslautern Chapter May 15th Meeting- American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times

Special Event: Opening Reception for the  American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times Exhibit

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times brings together seventy-seven images culled from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives. The dramatic scope of Kennedy’s life is evident in these photographs—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946, his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, his run for the White House in 1960 and role as commander in chief, to the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. These images remain as indelible evidence of John Kennedy’s personal charisma and political accomplishments.

American Visionary is organized by Lawrence Schiller of Wiener Schiller Productions. It is also organized in cooperation with John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and with support by Stephen Kennedy Smith und Getty Images. The exhibition is based on the book JFK: A Vision for America. Partners: The Atlantic Academy,   Kreissparkasse Kaiserslautern, Stadtwerke Kaiserslautern (SWK), U.S. Embassy Berlin

WHEN: Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 6.00 pm

WHERE:  Kreissparkasse Kaiserslautern, Am Altenhof 12-14 in 67655 Kaiserslautern
