Andrew Walker, director of the Amon Carter, said the exhibit will be an opportunity to recover an extraordinary moment that was overshadowed by the assassination.

He said with so much of the anniversary’s focus on the president’s death, this exhibit will offer a “kind of respite moment.”

“It’s taking as its point of mediation on that moment of great optimism. I hope people feel that,” he said.
