Join us on Tuesday, September 19 at the Parthenon from 6:00 - 8:00 pm for a reception and gallery talk with David Ewing. David Ewing will expound on the artifacts in A Day at the Fair and how these materials document the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition, the origins of Centennial Park, and the history of Nashville. Located in the Parthenon's West Gallery, the ongoing exhibit A Day at the Fair, with the David Ewing Collection, is now in its third edition with the 2017 volume showcasing over 65 artifacts that have never been displayed before. The expansion continues to give Parthenon guests a glimpse at the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition while also including an epilogue about the fair's impact on Nashville's emergence as a cultural center in the twentieth century.
