Experience the excitement of the circus this week with Thrills & Chills! The Fantastic World of the American Circus at the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery. Posters that advertised circus acts and banners giving a teaser to the wonders of sideshows are as colorful as the spectacles they promise and the true focus of this summer’s festive exhibition, which will remain on view in Cohen Memorial Hall until September 4.
Get your free popcorn just outside the gallery doors on Wednesday and Thursday, September 2-3, from 12 to 3:30 pm. Gallery hours this week (through Friday) are from 11 to 4 p.m. The Fine Arts Gallery is located in Cohen Memorial Hall, 1220 21st Avenue South, on the western edge of the Peabody College campus.
Thrills & Chills! The Fantastic World of the American Circus is organized by the Fine Arts Gallery and curated by Joseph Mella, director, and Margaret Walker, art curator assistant.
