Poster, "See, Play, Hear. Chicago 1934 World's Fair: A Century of Progress," 1934

Summary

Hungarian-born artist A. Raymond Katz, or Sandor as he often signed his work, captures the liveliness of the 1934 World's Fair in this streamlined poster. A portrait of iconic burlesque "fan dancer" Sally Rand points the viewer towards another highlight -- the architectural showpiece Sky Ride, which shuttled fair goers in rocket-shaped cars more than 200 feet above the ground.
