Ladies of the Ring

When:
Sep 10, 2014 – Feb 2, 2015
Free for Members
Contact:
Where:
Circus Museum

From flying through the air to being suspended high above the ring by nothing but the strength of their jaws and from catapulting from a teeter board to shooting out of a cannon, women have participated in every circus act imaginable. The lovely ladies of the ring were prime material for advertising with posters illustrating their incredible performances, their classic beauty, and the evolving social construction of femininity in American society.

This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of Howard and Janice Tibbals, the Howard Tibbals Collection and the Howard Tibbals Endowment.
