"In the entrance plaza of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts stand two large bronze panels by German artist Jürgen Weber (1928-2007): "Amerika" and "War or Peace." The two pieces were created between 1966 and 1971 and were a gift from the Federal Republic of Germany in memory of John F. Kennedy. Weber was born in Münster (North Rhine-Westphalia) and studied art history and sculpture at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart. He is well-known in Germany for his bold - and often controversial - sculptures, which stand in prominent public spaces all over the country."
