Each year special guests are invited to display works which express or interpret the summer theme. The works of this summer's Guest Poet have now been posted.

In the interim, the video link below is for a 3D re-creation of what the fairgrounds of the Chicago Columbian Exposition might have looked like in 1893. The event was called the Columbian exposition because it celebrated the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of Columbus in the country, as well as the nation's cultural and industrial progress. The picture on the left, also from the U.S. Library of Congress, shows the crowds on the opening day of the fair, May 1, 1893. The next U.S. world's fair, in St. Louis in 1904, was called the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition.
