September 25, 2011 - January 8, 2012 William and Anna Jane Schlossman Gallery, General Exhibition

Ladies and gentlemen! Children of all ages! Come one, come all to this extraordinary exhibition inspired by the drama and showmanship of the American circus. Contemporary mixed-media artist Judy Onofrio’s life-sized sculptures of performers, animals, and circus acts will be exhibited alongside historic examples of circus banners, posters, and carvings from Circus World Museum that provide context for her work. This spectacular installation will feature four of Onofrio’s major floor sculptures from the last decade and ten of her recent wall sculptures and two smaller floor sculptures. Colorful and dynamic, Onofrio’s work is known to engage and inspire viewers of all ages.

The exhibition was curated by Catherine Wilkins, a Minneapolis-based independent curator. Supported by US Bancorp and Fargo-Moorhead Area Foundation.
