TOMORROW'S WORLD

Submitted by ub on Sun, 08/17/2014 - 01:01

Tomorrow's World: The New York World’s Fairs and Flushing Meadows in Corona Park. In celebration of the 50th and 75th anniversaries of the World’s Fairs, Tomorrow’s World will include never before exhibited vintage images from the Parks Photo Archive and private collections that illustrate the dynamic evolution and conversion of a vast industrial wasteland into New York City's fourth largest park. The World’s Fairs propelled this transformation, while serving as defining social and cultural events for two generations. The show will also include memorabilia, as well as two zodiac animals from Paul Manship’s vandalized Armillary Sphere from the second fair.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
