A Treasury of World's Fair Art & Architecture

From Brussels to New York, World's Fairs have provided inspiration and offered visions of the future to all those who visited. This particular World's Fair-themed digital collection draws on the World's Fair Collection at University of Maryland's Architecture Library. The collection features items from a number of the Fairs, including those held in Paris, Buffalo, Chicago, and San Francisco. After checking out the "Introduction" area, visitors should move on to the "Exhibits" area. Here they will find a potpourri of photographs, plans, drawings, posters, and other printed materials that tell the story of each Fair. Visitors shouldn't miss the images from the 1915-1916 San Diego Panama California Exposition, which include shots of Balboa Park and the Prado, which was the central avenue of the fair. The "Essays" section include materials written for an honors seminar at the University of Maryland taught by Professor Isabelle Gournay which detail some of the achievements of each exposition.
