The Circus Show

Back in January, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced they will be closing down this May. Loftworks Gallery is pleased to announce The Circus Show, in order to honor this 146-year-old tradition.

Come celebrate this American institution at the crux of their final show at Loftworks Gallery for an exhibition of photographs by Cleveland-based photographer, Mike Wilkes. Wilkes traveled with the circus along with his beat up Nikon F2 and 30 rolls of film in the early 1980’s. He joined the team as a roustabout to experience and document the backstage circus life through photographs. What resulted was a rare retrospective glimpse of life behind the scenes of the circus and its people.
