About the Exhibition
PAAM is pleased to present JFK100: A Centennial Celebration featuring artwork and ephemera borrowed from the JFK Hyannis Museum and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. The Kennedy legacy is synonymous with Cape Cod – the Compound in Hyannis Port, home to the Kennedy family. In John F. Kennedy’s words, “ I always come back to the Cape and walk the beach when I have a tough decision to make. The Cape is the one place I can think and be alone.”
This exhibition features materials relating to a number of Kennedy family members – John F. Kennedy, Edward M. Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Jacqueline Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy. Additionally, correspondence between Jacqueline Kennedy and Robert Luddington, the interior designer for the Kennedy residences, is prominently on display.
PAAM extends a sincere thank-you to the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum Foundation and their Directors and leadership team for including PAAM in their centennial programming; and the EMK Institute for allowing us access to artworks by Andy Warhol and Jamie Wyeth. PAAM welcomes the opportunity to participate in the Centennial Celebration of JFK as well new collaborations and is very honored to partake in this important celebration.
