While drawing the JFK Memorial I thought back to when I was about 6 or 7. Walking up to this massive white stone block for the first time I was excited to see the grand sculpture that must be inside. The emptiness was such an extreme let down that I clearly recall the feeling. It remained on my most disliked public sculpture list 20+ years later when I had to report for jury duty... More later.
