Livestream lecture by Robert W. Rydell: “Waylande Gregory and the New York World’s Fair”
“Waylande Gregory and the New York World’s Fair”
Livestream lecture by Robert W. Rydell, professor of American Studies, Montana State University
Art Deco sculptor Waylande Gregory created numerous monumental ceramic works, including his "Fountain of the Atom" for the 1939 New York World’s Fair—a tribute to atomic energy that earned the attention of Albert Einstein. In this talk, Rydell, an expert on 1930s world’s fairs, will situate Gregory’s projects for the event in the broader vision of the New York fair’s overall theme, “The World of Tomorrow.”
