Fort Worth: JFK Tribute

Finally, the finished JFK Tribute has been unveiled in Fort Worth.  The centerpiece of the tribute is an 8ft bronze statue of President John F. Kennedy by sculptor Lawrence Ludtke.  Spearheaded by Downtown Fort Worth Inc, and designed by Jacobs, The Lighting Practice and Museumscapes, the new tribute serves to remind everyone of what happened during the first half of November 22, 1963.  JFK spent his last night in Fort Worth and gave his final two speeches, one being on the site of the new tribute.

I was present for the dedication ceremony this past week and grabbed a few photos.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get on site right at sunset, when the sky is best and photos turn out brilliantly.  Still, these night shots turned out pretty well.  On my next trip, I'll try to get some real shots.

I'm proud to have designed the lighting for this project!
