The Genius Spark of Nikola Tesla, a Conversation on Innovation

C2ST invites you to explore the life and work of one of the great minds of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Nikola Tesla's discoveries illuminated the World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago in 1893, and he captivated visitors with his displays of electrical power. Now, from August 6 to August 28 at Navy Pier, C2ST and The Belgrade Committee Sister Cities Chicago International will host The Genius Spark of Nikola Tesla, a traveling exhibit from the Tesla Museum in Belgrade in its first U.S. visit.
