|Margo would love a visit at Meet Margo: The Gold Royal with Star(let) Power|
|Entertainment for the evening. Sadly, there was a conspicuous lack of mimes.|
Photography is not allowed in the exhibit due to the number of pieces on loan from other galleries and private collections. Visit the website for more:
This is a major exhibit with many special programs and educational tie ins through its run. Skim the website and you'll get a good idea of the treasures that await. Our favorite part was the transition from Art Nouveau to Art Deco. Margo's designer, Henry Dreyfuss, even built a model city, "The Democracity", for the 1939 New York World's Fair.
In conjunction with Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World’s Fairs, 1851–1939, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is proud to present the Sun Pavilion. World’s fairs were the most important vehicle for debuting technological and stylistic advancements for functional objects and the pavilions that housed them. The Sun Pavilion is a temporary structure keeping with these important themes. The design and construction team for the Sun Pavilion includes Generator Studio, Tm Gratkowski, Brightergy LLC, Thornton Tomasetti, BC Engineers and Prosser Wilbert Construction. The Sun Pavilion will be a sophisticated and visually compelling mixture of architecture, design, and technology. The open and fragmented array of solar panels, scaffolding and interior spaces will create an exterior connection to the featured exhibition in the Bloch Building and provide interactive experiences on the museum campus. Visitors of all ages will experience progressive principles of contemporary design and technology in this exciting new space.
