    Working in brilliant color and with a large format camera, photographers Jimmy and Dena Katz spent three seasons following the last authentic traveling Side Show in America to create this elegy to a uniquely American art form. Their powerful, poignant and respectful portraits of aging performers and young recruits reveal disappointment, despair and tenacity played out against the tawdry glitter of the fairground. These images, along with anecdote and commentary by the performers, are brought together for the first time in "World Of Wonders" (powerHouse, 2009). Forty works will be on display at the Lamont Gallery. Opening reception: Thursday, July 7th, 5pm-6:30pm. All events are free and open to the public. This exhibition is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
