Please join us for the grand opening of the photo exhibition
American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times.

The exhibition brings together seventy-seven images culled from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives.

The dramatic scope of Kennedy’s life is evident in these photographs—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946, his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, his run for the White House in 1960 and role as commander in chief, to the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. These images remain as indelible evidence of John Kennedy’s personal charisma and political accomplishments.

President of Leipzig University Prof. Dr. Beate Schücking, Consul General Timothy Eydelnant and American Space Leipzig Director Prof. Crister S. Garrett will open the exhibition on 6 Nov, 5 pm, at the Hörsaalgebäude, 2nd floor, UNIVERSITÄT LEIPZIG.

The exhibition is free and open to the public from November 6 to the end of the year.
