President John F. Kennedy’s Last Exhibit [08.15.2013]

The night before he was killed, President John F. Kennedy spent the night surrounded by a one-of-a-kind collection of masterpiece artworks. A curator in Dallas has recreated that collection as a tribute. Also in this show: Gore Vidal, the late novelist, speaks with interviewer Studs Terkel in 1961 about John F. Kennedy and the great intellectuals of American history; when a would-be thief tried to get away with Voodoo Donut Kitchen’s prized Holy Donut, clerk Jay Boss Rubin sprung into action. What he didn’t know was the pursuit would take on a life of its own.


"Crosscheck" by Zach Miskin and Todd Reynolds; "Waiting in the Night" by Forest Fire; "Dumb I Sound ATLiens" by Tor, Sufjan Stevens; "Ballad of Friar Jay;" "Ode to Buckwheat" by Brent Lewis; and "Miss Tear Drop" by Felix Laband
