Tomorrow’s World: The New York World’s Fair

In celebration of the 50th and 75th anniversaries of the World’s Fairs, “Tomorrow’s World: The New York World’s Fairs and Flushing Meadows Corona Park”  includes 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. – NYC Parks

Tomorrow’s World” is free and open to the public through August 27, from Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at The Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, 830 Fifth Avenue.
