Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair: The Archeology of Garbage
Each year MOWA celebrates Carl von Marr’s February 14 birthday with a talk about his work and the world in which he lived.





Carl von Marr, Flagallents

Since MOWA is home to two works that Marr exhibited at the 1893 World’s Fair (The Flagellants and Summer Afternoon), Professor Rebecca Graff of Lake Forest College will speak about the famous World’s Fair and the—literally—ground-breaking archaeological work she does by digging up historic trash that is a treasure trove of information. As is customary, the event will end with birthday cake.

Special thanks to the Melitta S. and Joan M. Pick Charitable Trust for its ongoing support of MOWA.
