Back on the Map: The Tent of Tomorrow

The main attraction at the Tent of Tomorrow was a giant terrazzo pavement of aTexaco road map of New York State. Heralded as the largest map in the world, the pavement was an instant success with the public. The main floor was a hub for activities such as fashion shows and free entertainment by thousands of non-professionals groups. A "kiddy ride"and a small zoo were included to cater to younger guests. The Tent housed a traditional art show with fifty works by New York artists dating from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries.
