Group DescriptionThe National Building Museum is developing an exhibition entitled Designing Tomorrow: America’s World’s Fairs of the 1930s which will consider the common design themes shared by six exposition of the Depression-era:
•Century of Progress Exposition, 1933-1934, Chicago, Illinois
•California-Pacific International Exposition (“America’s Exposition”), 1935-1936, San Diego, California
•Great Lakes Exposition, 1936-1937, Cleveland, Ohio
•Texas Centennial Exposition, 1936, Dallas, Texas
•Golden Gate International Exposition (on Treasure Island), 1939-1940, San Francisco, California
•New York World’s Fair, 1939-1940, Queens, New York
As part of the exhibition’s final gallery, the curatorial team would like to create a slide show drawn from Flickr user collections related to the fairs. Photos sought for the installation include anything from family snapshots taken in the 1930s to contemporary photos taken at Dallas’ Fair Park, Balboa Park in San Diego, or other fair-related sites. The goal is to see how the world’s fairs live on in personal memory and personal experience. Photos of personal mementos, souvenirs, or postcards are also welcome.
Please understand that by joining the Designing Tomorrow Flickr group your photos may be chosen for display within the exhibition but that participation in the group is not a guarantee that photos will be included. All users whose work is selected will be notified of their inclusion prior to the exhibition’s opening on October 2, 2010.
