Hotel Texas: An Art Exhibition for the President And Mrs. John F. Kennedy

Amid the political and historical analyses bearing upon the fiftieth anniversary of president John F. Kennedy's assassination, the story of a small art exhibition assembled for the president and Mrs. Kennedy at Hotel Texas in Fort Worth for their overnight stay o November 21, 1963, constitutes a rare intersection between art and historical tragedy. This is a tribute to the Kennedy's interest in art, and an opportunity to learn about a little-known effort to enrich and enliven the Kennedy's visit.
