As part of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum’s year-long, nationwide celebration that commemorates Kennedy’s centennial year, the New-York Historical Society presents a new exhibition commemorating President John F. Kennedy’s private life and public trajectory. American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times, is one of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled, bringing together images from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives that capture public and private moments from Kennedy’s life. Some of the photographs on display are iconic and others have never before been published.

The event will feature remarks by Dr. Louise Mirrer, President and CEO of the New-York Historical Society; Stephen Kennedy Smith, co-editor of the book JFK: A Vision for America; and Marilyn Satin Kushner, curator and head of New-York Historical’s Department of Prints, Photographs, and Architectural Collections; followed by a tour of the show by its curator, Lawrence Schiller of Wiener Schiller Productions.
