John F. Kennedy Memorabilia
Also on display will be a replica of the rocking chair belonging to President Kennedy. There will also be several other rare pieces that have not seen since 1963. Included will be many pieces of campaign materials, newspapers and other ephemera available for the public to explore

What will be on Display?
The bank lobby will hold a unique exhibition throughout late summer into early December. Among the featured displays will be America Mourns, America Changes, Peaceful Reflection, and finally an art display not ever seen before in Dallas. On display will be an artist proof of the Kennedy bust from the Kennedy Presidential Library by Felix De Weldon. (see above), a portrait of President Kennedy by John Stango, the undisputed leader of the Pop Art movement today. There will also be a multimedia display allowing visitors to relive the events of 1963.

Who can view this unique display?
The exhibition is open to anyone who interested in the 35th President of the United States of America. Unlike most displays this one requires active participation from the viewers. One such example will be the “Where were you” set up to ask viewers to provide their input on four recent tragic events.
