AUI helped Downtown Fort Worth Initiative and the City of Fort Worth, a public-private partnership, dedicate the JFK Tribute in General Worth Square. This tribute is a beautiful landmark that will forever commemorate his historic visit to the city. The 8 foot bronze sculpture of JFK is place in a circular granite plaza featuring a water feature and larger-than-life photos depicting the president's visit to Fort Worth.
