Description

The John F. Kennedy Macomb Memorial Committee commissioned Fredericks to design this sculpture for the County Building in Mount Clemens, Michigan.

Placed near the site where Kennedy delivered one of his first campaign speeches while running for president in 1960, the bronze portrait head is four times the size of life in heroic-scale. The facial features are very realistic and strongly modeled. Fredericks said he attempted to capture several qualities of Kennedy in this portrait including his vitality, intensity, earnestness, and idealism.
