Virtual Artist Conversation: Gage Mace


Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

This is a virtual event

The Assassination of President Kennedy: A Conversation with artist Gage Mace 

Between 1992 and 1996, Portland, Oregon-based artist Gage Mace responded to the Kennedy assassination in a unique way—by painting a life-size triptych, measuring 4.5 feet by 14 feet, that depicted the shooting in Dealey Plaza from the perspective of an Elm Street eyewitness. The startling hyper realism of his painting, inspired by the Abraham Zapruder film, highlights and brings forward details of the moment immediately before the fatal shot. Mace’s interest in President Kennedy goes back to the early 1960s. As a ten-year-old, he saw the president in the lobby of the Beverly Hilton Hotel on August 19, 1962, and that brief encounter had a profound impact on his life. Mace joins Museum Curator Stephen Fagin in conversation to share his childhood memories and the story behind his painting, The Assassination of President Kennedy. (Available on The Sixth Floor Museum's YouTube Channel beginning April 8 at 7 p.m.)
