World’s Fair Article at

Pondering a Robert Delaunay painting at Musee d'Art Moderne, Paris published another of my travel articles.  Read the article here: Visiting World’s Fairs:  11 Museums and Monuments that Take Us Back to the Future.

On an innocent stopover in Knoxville, I visited the Sunsphere.  Once I had world’s fair on the brain, it was interesting to see where they would show themselves.  In Wisconsin, I discovered the restored Norwegian Pavilion from the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.  On a visit to the Columbus Museum of Art this week, I found a Robert Delaunay painting created for the Italian Pavilion at the 1937 Paris World’s Fair.  I didn’t make it to Shanghai for the Expo last year, but I bet I can find a relic somewhere.
