Upcoming Events

Extraordinary Animals

Museum, Installations
Although not as highly advertised as their exotic counterparts, domesticated animals including dogs, cats, and birds have always been popular performers in the circus ring. Horses, pigs, and goats also have been trained to perform astonishing displays of intelligence and feats of skill. These animal acts rely on the combination of the familiar with the unexpected to entertain. Posters celebrating the remarkable intelligence and highly developed skills of these four-legged performers once covered walls and fences across America. Today these historic posters can be seen as part of the exhibit Amazing Animals on display in the Circus Museum’s Tibbals Learning Center

Approaching the Border

Multimedia, Photography
Approaching the Border will feature video works by five international artists that challenge us to examine our thinking about the US/Mexico border. As a group, these videos meditate on the social phenomena and politics of the border in an era when migration and the reemergence of nationalism are key global issues. Some artists situate their work in the actual space of the borderlands, in either México or the US, and thus bear the different inflections that the politics of the boundary manifest on each side. Other projects meditate on the power of borders as powerful signifiers and means of shaping our perceptions of identity and belonging.

Alfred Eisenstaedt: Defining Moments

Photography, Museum
Alfred Eisenstaedt was one of the luminaries of American photojournalism. The German-born Eisenstaedt learned his craft in Europe in the 1920s and 30s, pioneering the use of the small Leica 35mm camera to get closer to his subjects and create more candid pictures. Eisenstaedt’s skillful reportage for the Associated Press earned him praise and recognition as he recorded countless historically significant events and people around the world. Fleeing the rise of fascism in the 1930s, Eisenstaedt came to the US where he became one of the first photojournalists of LIFE Magazine, the weekly newsmagazine that chronicled the twentieth century in pictures. His career at Life magazine photographing the notable and newsworthy, spanned nearly forty years and resulted in some of the most iconic images of the era. The photographs on exhibition, part of The Ringling’s permanent collection, present subjects both notable and obscure. While only a fraction of the thousands of images Eisenstaedt created in his lifetime they offer a glimpse into the work of one of the most celebrated photojournalists.
