Kennedy Assassination and the Arts Teacher Workshop
 
Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
$25
(6 CPE Credit hours/ 6 G/T Credit hours)
On November 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy was assassinated during a routine political campaign trip to Dallas. The loss of America’s youngest elected president was felt around the world. How did this shocking and tragic event affect the public and how did we heal from this loss? This interdisciplinary workshop explores how artists expressed their own and the country’s grief and confusion in the immediate aftermath of the assassination and half a century later during the 50th anniversary of the tragedy.

The workshop includes an exhibit tour and a presentation by the Museum’s interpretation staff on its collection of oral histories, photographs, artifacts, documents, books and films that examine expressions of art, music, poetry, theatre and literature from the 1960s. Special sessions will also be led by Amanda Blake, Head of Family, Access and School Experiences at the Dallas Museum of Art, Jamie Allen, Director of Education at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, artist and educator Karen Blessen of 29 Pieces.

This full-day, interactive session of conversation and activities will lead to a broader discussion on how art can serve as a therapeutic tool for healing.

Dallas Times Herald, 1963: Photographers Remember
 
Tuesday, November 18, 2014 - 7 p.m.
$25

What began as a routine assignment for Dallas Times Herald photographers William Allen, Darryl Heikes, Bob Jackson, and Eamon Kennedy quickly evolved into one of the most significant news stories of the 20th century. These photojournalists captured some of the most significant moments at Dallas Love Field, during the presidential motorcade, at Parkland Memorial Hospital, at the Tippit murder scene, inside Dallas police headquarters, and other important locations throughout the assassination weekend. Their work documented the unfolding story of the president’s death, the investigation, and subsequent murder and burial of suspect Lee Harvey Oswald.
