Back in 1974, Spokane, Washington became the first place to host the World’s Fair.
The World’s Fair was attended by more than five million people.
The fair was situated near Spokane River on Canada Island. The site of the World’s Fair is still one of the coolest tourist attractions in Spokane. I have lived in Spokane for the past five years. I came to the city to work at the Northwest Museum of Arts and culture. I graduated from Washington University with a master’s degree in art history and painting restoration. I was happy to find a job at the Museum of Arts and culture. I applied to several different places around the city, but the museum was the first place to call me for an interview. I got a call back a few days later with an offer to join the museum art restoration team. Most days I spend my time restoring old paintings. Time and elements can cause a lot of problems with old, historic artifacts. Heat and cold air can cause morphing and cracks. Humidity can cause the paint to fade. It’s my job to make sure that every painting still looks as beautiful as it did on the day that it was created. I have a special room that has an air filtration system. The air filtration system removes all of the dirt, debris, and humidity from the air. The indoor air is completely clean and free of any airborne contaminants. The room is one of a kind and a special area just for the restoration and renovation of historical artifacts and paintings.
