Kennedy and photographer Lewis Hine during a special “Evening of Art and Blue Hens” to be held Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City.
The center is hosting several exhibitions, including “JFK November 22, 1963: A Bystander's View of History,” which examines the imaginative reception of iconic photographs of the assassination, the search for the killer, the swearing in of the new president and the funeral. Stills from Abraham Zapruder’s famous footage of the assassination are included.
