 The Circus

The Circus, originally inspired by Alexander Calder’s work of the same name, was first shown at The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art in 2011.  The collection was further inspired by P.T. Barnum and the Golden Age of the Circus: a world filled with parades of elaborate floats, colorful gilded carts of wild beasts, extravagant big tent performances, and fascinating sideshows by unforgettable characters.

Tributes to Three Female Artists

María Izquíerdo, Olga Costa, and Frida Kahlo worked in Mexico during the 1930s and 1940s.  They were very influential in the Mexican Modern Art movement.  Their paintings and their lives have inspired Kathleen since she was a student in Mexico in the 1970s.
