Springfield Art Museum presents 99x: Cirque Americana, where they transform YOUR Art Museum into a fantastical fairground of living art tableaux and magical performances - from the hottest local artists, tastemakers, and trendsetters - all inspired by classic American circus acts and attractions.
This year's event raises funds to restore works in our collection by noted Regionalist Ben Messick. Originally from Strafford, Messick earned his fame in Los Angeles as a sketch artist for Disney and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and as a painter of urban American street scenes. His circus drawings, paintings, and lithographs - particularly his clown studies - became his trademark work.
Join the revelry at this three-ring ritz that you won't want to miss! Creative cocktail attire encouraged. #99xCirque
