Step Right Up: Art of the Sideshow

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - Saturday, August 29, 2015

Campus Location: Visual Arts Building, Art Gallery(140A)
Cost: Free and Open to the Public

Sideshow banners, the large brightly painted signs that advertise the extraordinary acts of the carnival sideshow, are a vivid and colorful example of Americana. Today, the sideshow is largely a thing of the past, but examples of its banners as well as photographs of them still exist. This exhibition will feature these visual representations of the sideshow to tell the story of American leisure and entertainment from the 1930s-1960s.

Special guest appearance and book-signing by Johnny Meah 'The Czar of Bizarre,' Saturday, August 29, 6pm

Curated by Dr. Keri Watson.

Breaking Boundaries

Thursday, September 3, 2015 - Friday, September 25, 2015

Campus Location: Visual Arts Building, Art Gallery(140A)
Cost: Free and Open to the Public

On loan from the Atlantic Center for the Arts

In 1997, a portfolio of original, signed works by former Master Artists in residence was amassed to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Atlantic Center for the Arts. The portfolio's theme, Breaking Boundaries, reflected the creative process, the essence of Atlantic Center's mission. The collection, which grows as the roster of artists-in-residence grows, includes over 150 works of art ranging from musical scores and recordings to audio poems and dance videos, from edited manuscripts and photographs to sketches and studies.
