In tribute to the 50th anniversary of the 1963 four-day visit to Ireland by President John F. Kennedy, the Art Park, Dublin's largest outdoor visual arts screen, will project a photographic montage of images taken during this historic homecoming journey.

The projection will run from dusk to 1am over the anniversary dates and will highlight many of the evocative images featured in the online 50th anniversary exhibition of the JFK Homecoming Memorial Project www.jfkhomecoming.com
