The Great Farini
by NAC Member Anne Warren
Saturday 15 March - Friday 11 April
Opening Reception Sunday 16 March 2pm
The Great Farini is a portrayal of the amazing life of Albert Hunt. Growing up in Port Hope he trained himself to become a superb athlete, rivalling Blondin in his feats on the high wire crossing Niagara Falls. He had a true Victorian spirit however, with a restless enquiring mind. Not only was he a great showman and businessman but a thoughtful and imaginative inventor. I created these little theatrical boxes to highlight some of the moments in his long and fascinating life.
