Thursday May 8, The Barnum Museum will feature an amazingly original display,
Lost and Found Circus: A Creative Balancing Act by Bridgeport artist Susan Tabachnick.
The exhibition features a circus-themed presentation of small sculptures created
with found objects, many of them incorporating old industrial parts and small
tools. The components are not altered in any way, but are assembled into whimsical
sculptures suggestive of the lively energy and humor that characterizes the circus.
The assemblages give "new life" to items originally made for other purposes.
Tabachnick never forces the unions and she doesn't weld or glue the pieces together;
they must fit or balance.
The Thursday, Friday
and Saturday hours at the museum are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ... more
Susan Tabachnick will run
an Artist in Residence Workshop: Inventive Play on July 16 from 1:30 p.m.
to 3:30 p.m. at The Barnum Museum.
will focus on creating small sculptures with found objects. Creativity begins
with a good sense of "play" that leads to discovery and inventiveness.
This workshop invites attendees to "play" with an assortment of interesting
found objects to assemble and transform them into intriguing new objects, perhaps
with their own whimsical personalities. Tabachnick will help guests experiment
and see the possibilities for how things can fit together or balance. The museum
will supply the found objects, but please feel free to bring your own objects,
especially those made of metal, wood or ceramic. The workshop will be appropriate
for adults and kids, ages 8 and up. $5 per family is the suggested donation. ...

to reveal the newest "curiosity" to take up residency here.
the moment of truth arrived -- riding a crest of anticipation -- a chorus of oohhs
and aahhs from the 50 or so amazed attendees followed.
was a fitting reaction since the ancient skeleton -- displayed in a huge, glass
case -- could change the course of history. ... Full
