Dallas Artists Show “Love” 50 Years After JFK's Killing

About 30,000 works of art reflecting on love will be displayed throughout Dallas this fall to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

On Saturday, volunteers with the nonprofit art organization 29 Pieces began displaying the works as part of its Dallas LOVE Project. Over several weeks, the 18-inch-by-18-inch art pieces created by everyone from schoolchildren to business people will line the route taken by the Kennedy motorcade on the afternoon of his assassination, along with other locations such as Parkland Memorial Hospital where Kennedy was taken after being shot.

The nonprofit says the project is intended to show Dallas -- branded "City of Hate" after the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination -- is a place where love thrives.
