While some may think that world's fairs may no longer be important events
for cities around the world, the ExpoMuseum website may prove those persons
completely wrong. The site pays tribute to the past, present, and future of
these immensely popular expositions, and also includes a number of fun
features, such as a discussion area and a special section dedicated to the
architecture of these places. From the homepage, visitors can also learn
about the upcoming world's fairs, such as Shanghai's Expo 2010. The
historical material here is the real highlight, as visitors can peruse a
timeline of these fairs, and move to various other sites that provide
substantive explorations of each fair through primary documents and first-
hand recollections. Also, the Architecture section of the site provides
images of such well-known buildings as the Space Needle (built for the 1962
World's Fair) and the Hungarian Pavilion at the 2000 World's Fair in
Hanover. [KMG]

Association of Hispanic Arts

Based in New York, the Association of Hispanic Arts (AHA) was founded in
1975 as a not-for-profit organization "dedicated to the advancement of
Latino arts, artists and arts organizations as an integral part of the
cultural life of the nation." With generous funding from a variety of
organizations, including the Rockefeller Foundation and the National
Endowment for the Arts, AHA continues to fulfill this admirable mission.
First-time visitors will want to start by looking through the Latino Events
On-line (LEO) calendar, which serves as a clearing-house of information
about upcoming cultural events in the Latino community, such as exhibitions
and readings. Equally valuable is the archive of the issues of
organization's publication, _AHA! Hispanic Arts News_. The site is rounded
out by an area that allows users to peruse various Latino-themed videos,
musical recordings, and books. [KMG]

Henry O. Tanner [Macromedia Flash Player]

Henry Ossawa Tanner, 1859-1937, was a deeply religious, mystical painter,
who, as an African-American, found it difficult to gain acceptance for his
artwork in the United States, and lived most of his life in France. The
Smithsonian American Art Museum presents this comprehensive online
exhibition on Tanner's life and work, utilizing both paintings and archival
materials from its collections. The Flash exhibit is divided into three
sections. First, there is Biography, essentially an illustrated timeline,
including photographs showing Tanner in his studio at 51 boulevard Saint-
Jacques, Paris, ca. 1900, and Tanner's wife, Jesse Macauley Olssen, at the
time of their marriage in 1899. Second, Work in Context, where users can
first read a bit about Tanner's education and contemporaries, then view
examples of Tanner's work, and try a self-test, attempting to pick out the
Tanner paintings from groups of four paintings on particular themes, e.g.
Nocturnes, Portraits, Shepherds. Finally there is a Gallery of all 57
Tanners held by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. [DS]

Radio Memories [QuickTime]

The "Golden Age of Radio" that arguably lasted until the early 1950s may be
hard to imagine today in an era of swirling iPod playlists and other genre-
bending devices and technologies, but during this time the radio reigned
supreme. People tuned in every week to hear the exploits of Flash Gordon,
Sam Spade, and Amos n' Andy. Thanks to the Radio Memories website, many of
these memories can be relived, or just experienced for the first time.
Started in May 2005, the site contains a host of compelling programs,
including episodes from the Interplanetary Adventures of Flash Gordon and a
number of original episodes of the fabled Radio Detective Story Hour. If
those types of programs fail to pique the interest of the casual visitor,
the site also contains archived shows that explore the world of radio soap
operas from the 1940s and the musical worlds of such stars as Tommy Dorsey
and Harry James. [KMG]

The myth of the Amazons, a tribe of bloodthirsty blond women
thundering across arid battlefields to the horror of their male
foes, has lingered for centuries. But proof of their existence
had always been lacking. Now, a 2,500-year-old mystery may have
been solved, cracked by an American scientist whose 10-year
odyssey led her tens of thousands of miles in pursuit of the
truth. (CC, Stereo, 1 year)
