Sesquicentennial exposition 1926


An international world's fair in Philadelphia, it was a celebration of the 150th anniversary of the signing of the US Declaration of Independence, and the 50th Anniversary of the 1876 Centennial Exposition. It ran from May 31 through November, 1926. The Exposition symbol was an 80 foot Liberty Bell covered in 26,000 light bulbs at the entrance of the grounds, then known as League Island Park. Although about 10 million people attended, the Fair lost money and went into receivership. American artists participating in the Exposition included Louis Oscar Griffith, Albert Laessle, Hayley Lever, Wellington Reynolds, and Marie Danforth Page. Sources:; AskART biographies
