Artist's Description

This world-famous bust of President John F. Kennedy presides over the Grand Foyer of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Sculptor Robert Berks’ monumental eight-foot head of President Kennedy was dedicated in 1971 at the opening of the Kennedy Center. It faces the steps of the center’s Opera House, and from those steps one has a commanding view of the front of the 3,000-pound bust. But this photographer chose to photograph the bust from its side so that it could be seen in relation to the elaborate Grand Foyer with its sixty-three foot ceiling, tall mirrors and elegant lights that hang low and reflect nicely in the mirrors.
