The days of the World's Fair may be gone, but the epic exhibitions will live on at the Museum of the City of New York starting this December. Their "Designing Tomorrow: America’s World’s Fairs of the 1930s" opens on December 5th, and will explore fairs from across the country, including New York, Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Cleveland, and San Francisco.
The exhibition provides a glimpse into all that was sleek and futuristic in the 1930s, as the country was in the midst of the Great Depression. "Designing Tomorrow" includes a full-scale replica of Elektro, the talking robot created for Westinghouse, and modern conveniences (like toasters) exhibited at the fair. The show also features fantastic photographs of the fairground from the Museum’s collection and Kodachrome slides showing the fair in color.
