From the steps of the Opera House one has a commanding view of the Grand Foyer including the eight foot bronze bust of President John F. Kennedy. The 3000 pound bust, designed and created by American sculptor Robert Berks, reminds us that the nation's premiere performing arts center also stands as a living memorial to our 35th president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Flanking the bust on each side is an interactive exhibit entitled John F. Kennedy, His Life and Legacy. The exhibit provides visitors with a wealth of audiovisual information about Kennedy's career, his accomplishments, and his most memorable speeches.
