Come Back To The Fair - New York State Pavilion (2016).

1964-65 New York World's Fair | Come Back to the Fair - New York State Pavilion
A Tribute To The Future Of Flushing Meadows Corona Park

The 1964-65 New York World's Fair took place at a turning point in our nation's history.  For many, it was considered the "last gasp" of the optimism of the 1950s. Many of the pavilions represented a modern take on classic architecture from their countries of origin or  forward-thinking views on what buildings would look like in the future.

Philip Johnson's "New York State Pavilion" would stand the test of time as an icon of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, though it would cease to function as a public venue in the late 1970's.  The future is starting to look bright for this "modern ruin", though...as donations and grants begin pouring in to help the pavilion find a new use in today's world.  Work continues to rehabilitate this beautiful work of architectural art which has also found its way into modern popular culture thanks to films like "Men In Black", "Iron Man", and "The Wiz".

Originally created as a companion piece for concept artwork I created and which was displayed during the "Pavilion Futures" exhibit at the Queens Museum, this artwork depicts the New York State Pavilion as I see it in my mind's eye...beckoning people to return to the site of the World's Fair to enjoy all the amazing things "The Empire State" has to offer.
