The Los Angeles Times covers to NYC exhibitions on the day that Changed America

Photos and artifacts factor into two JFK exhibits at Newseum and one at the International Center of Photography.

"Three Shots Were Fired," one of two shows at Washington, D.C's Newseum, examines the media's role in covering the tragedy and the four days that followed. Of the 100 pieces on display are dozens of front-page newspapers reporting the president's death, Abraham Zapruder's camera and five rarely seen artifacts collected from Lee Harvey Oswald on the day of his arrest, including the jacket he wore, his wallet and a card with the address of the Soviet embassy.

At the ICP "A Bystander's View of History" examines the imaginative reception of these iconic photographs. The exhibition includes stills from Abraham Zapruder's famous footage of the assassination, as well as news photographs, snapshots by bystanders, souvenirs, and scrapbooks. Organized by ICP Chief Curator Brian Wallis on the fiftieth anniversary of the tragedy, these visual artifacts demonstrate the active role of photography in negotiating trauma and facilitating mourning.
