"The Contemporary Arts Building, New York World's Fair, 1939. The Contemporary Arts Building at the New York World's Fair 1939 is designed to house the most comprehensive exhibit of works by living American artists ever assembled in this country. The exhibit comprises 800 works in painting, sculpture and the graphic arts. The keynote of the exhibition is 'Democracy in Art,' and every artist in the country is given an equal chance to have his work represented at the Fair. This sketch shows how the structure looks at night against a background of fountains in the Lagoon of Nations. The architects are: Ackerman, Lowenfish and Van Pelt."--verso.
