Under the Arcane Big Top
Photographs by Alex Sobschak
Opening Reception Friday 6 February at 7PM

First imagine characters you would see in a traveling circus, now imagine them in an every day setting. What do they look like? How do they live their every day lives? Under the arcane big top is a photographic exhibit that showcases people who used to work in a traveling circus but now have to adjust to the daily lives of modern day society. Although they may be living and working among us, they still resemble their old lives. 

From shopping for clothes or having lunch, you can still recognize who these characters used to be.
