3. Administration Building, Columbian Exposition
This is an image of the Administration Building at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. I became interested in the Columbian Exposition after moving to Chicago and reading The Devil in the White City. I made a trip to the Harold Washington library and found many images of the extraordinary campus created for the first Chicago World's Fair. This painting was made as a donation to the Zebra Ball, which raises money for the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation.
