Art Reframes History is a special installation of works of art drawn from the Museum’s collections that explores the variety of ways artists interpret history. The creative voices in this exhibit span time and geography but all share a common point of inspiration: the life and legacy of President Kennedy. Featuring visual art as well as musical composition and performance, the exhibit presents ten different artistic responses expressed in a variety of media—including photography, oil painting and screen prints, opera and musical theater, string quartet and percussion ensemble. The featured works serve as examples of the breadth of creativity that one historic event can inspire.
Like The Sixth Floor, Art Reframes History is currently closed. Check the Museum’s website and social media for updates on our reopening. When the Museum reopens, this special exhibit will be on view in the Museum’s 7th floor gallery and will be included with Museum admission.
