University Galleries is participating in Normal 1-5-0, the celebration of the Town of Normal's 150th anniversary. We are partnering with Milner Library and a private collector to display circus-related items from September 11 through September 13, 2015. The mini-exhibition will include a hand-painted circus banner created by Urbana-based artist/curator Glen C. Davies for University Galleries' 2011 Magnificent Menagerie exhibition and twelve reproductions of original circus posters from Milner Library, Special Collections - Circus and Allied Arts. On Saturday only, the display will also include original costumes from Cecil B. DeMille's 1952 film, The Greatest Show on Earth.
University Galleries' hours for this event are 9:30 - 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
