Wisconsin Centennial Murals on Display

Posted on 07/25/2013

In 2013, Wisconsin Centennial Murals are once again being displayed at State Fair Park.

According to the Wisconsin Historical Society: "For the first time in more than 60 years, visitors to the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis can stand in front of massive murals depicting farm life in Wisconsin. Spanning 60 feet wide and 12 feet high, two vivid murals from the 1948 Centennial Exposition (State Fair) have recently been conserved and are now on display as the centerpiece to the State Fair History Museum display in the Exposition Center. The featured murals depict an idyllic Wisconsin farmhouse and farmstead set in 1948."
