Fort Worth Opera Symposium in partnership with The Sixth Floor Museum: The Arts – Free
March 24, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Jack and Jackie Kennedy were avid supporters of the visual and performing arts, and under his presidency developed positions that empowered the arts and gave a voice to architecture. They hosted White House parties in honor of famous artists, and JFK supported the creation of the GSA Art in Architecture Program to oversee the commission of artwork for new Federal building, and created the position of Special Consultant on the Arts. The panelists for this evening will discuss how Fort Worth welcomed JFK with art 50 years ago and how governmental support affects the creation of art and architecture today.
- Darren Woods, General Director Fort Worth Opera
- David T. Little, Composer of JFK
- Andrew Walker, Amon Carter Director
