San Antonio’s Hemisfair Park was the home of the 1968 World’s Fair. Over the course of six months, the fair welcomed more than thirty nations and six million visitors. The park is home to the iconic Tower of the Americas, fountains, and playgrounds, and the site hosts events and festivals year round. This shawl was designed (and photographed) in Hemisfair Park and was inspired by the vibrant and colorful murals and sculptures throughout the park.
