Art and Ideals: a visit to the Kennedy Center
Tuesday, January 24, 2023, 11:30 AM until 3:00 PM
2700 F St., NW, Washington DC
Located in the heart of President Kennedy’s living memorial, the new, immersive, exhibit "Art and Ideals: President John F. Kennedy" uses the latest in digital technology to explore how the arts infused and informed the Kennedy presidency.<br /><br />Using the power of JFK’s own remarkable words to explore his presidential legacy through the lens of his appreciation and promotion of the arts, it provides visitors with an understanding of how the Kennedy Center—our National Cultural Center—became a living memorial to both President Kennedy and his ideals.<br /><br />BMAV members and friends will meet in Bethesda to carpool to the Kennedy Center and view the self-guided exhibit. Admission is free. One hour free parking can be validated with a $10 purchase at the gift shop. If there is interest, we will have lunch together after.
