World's fair historian Pierre Montiel will be presenting a vivid lecture depicting the significance of the Trylon and Perisphere to the 1939 World's Fair, both as an image and as a physical structure. The historical, artistic, architectural, nostalgic, and celebrity status connotations that are associated with the Trylon and Persiphere will also be included in this very unique illustrated slide lecture.
The presentation will take place on Sunday, April 26, at 2:30 p.m. at headquarters of the Queens Historical Society, Kingsland Homestead, 143-35 37th Avenue in Flushing. Street Parking is available and the #7 train at Main Street is very close by. The lecture is free with admission, which is $2 for seniors and students, $3 for adults, and children under are free.
