JOHN KENNEDY: JOY OF LIFE

JULY 27 - SEPTEMBER 28, 2018


The sculptor John Kennedy (1931 – 2004) is widely known for his graceful bronze figures, which adorn parks, campuses, and public buildings around the world. Two of his most famous sculptures are Spirit of Audrey, dedicated to Audrey Hepburn and located at the UNICEF Headquarters in New York City, and The Entertainer, the official bronze award given every year to winners of the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Kennedy sought to reveal the intimacy of loving relationships by giving his abstract figures recognizable gestures and poses, such as the caress of a hand or a gentle embrace. He once said of his creative process: “You can tell so much from a figure’s body language. Even the tilt of the head shows a particular mood or emotion. In this way, the body is a vehicle for the expression of the spirit.”
