Step Right Up: The Art of the Sideshow

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 visual representations of it still exist. This exhibition tells the story of American leisure and entertainment through: sideshow banners by Fred Johnson, Snap Wyatt and Johnny Meah from the collections of Howard Marks; photographs by Reginald Marsh, Marion Post Wolcott, Jack Delano and Paul Strand from the collections of the Library of Congress and R. Drapkin; paintings by Arnold Mesches and sculptures by Rigoberto Torres.
