50 Year JFK Anniversary
The Dallas Love Project
Dallas has been transformed into one giant art gallery with 30,000 pieces of art inspired by the words of great peacemakers, poets, artists and musicians. Created by the people of Dallas, this remarkable project will redefine the city through a genuine outpouring of love — a true reflection of the character and courage of a remarkable city. The art will be displayed along the JFK motorcade route and all across Dallas through the anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, November 22, 2013.
The President John Fitzgerald Kennedy Day of Service, founded by Chart Westcott, will commemorate the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination and honor his legacy through a citywide day of service on Saturday, November 23, 2013. Dallas residents will have the opportunity to participate in community service projects across the county, filling more than 2,500 volunteer slots for Dallas civic organizations, sending a strong message about the generosity of the city’s citizens and their commitment to honoring President Kennedy’s service legacy.
For all other general inquiries please contact Lindsey Williams, Executive Director for JFK Day, at 214-960-7767.
