Pittsburgh industrialists Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick were both inspired by their visits to the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. This inspiration and other fascinating themes are considered in Carnegie Museum of Art’s exhibition Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World’s Fairs, 1851–1939 and the Clayton thematic tour Going to the Fair: Meeting the Modern World, which both run until February 24.
Join us at the Frick Art Museum as Carnegie and Frick curators discuss the impact of this fascinating and pivotal world’s fair on the industrialists’ cultural legacies in Pittsburgh.
