To quote the Roman poet Juvenal, The two things only the people anxiously desire are bread and circuses! A 2019 spin on this biting satirical truism is the Gallery’s show for March, BEADS and CIRCUSES, celebrating one of the greatest public spectacles anywhere and anytime, New Orleans Mardi Gras! The lengthy celebration, beginning on Twelfth Night, January 6th, would have done the Empire proud! The festivities continue all through the month with the group show of revelry, royalty, parades and second lines. After Mardi Gras proper on March 5, the show pays tribute to Super Sunday on March 17th and St. Joseph’s Night featuring the feathered and beaded panoply of the Mardi Gras Indian tribes, with Michelle Dashev’s sensational life-size figures.
