Circus TransformUS: A Celebration of Transformation
Imagine a world where society is reborn to believe that humans and all life forms can coexist sharing and sustaining the earth’s natural gifts. Circus TransformUS is a visually stunning contemporary circus performance which incorporates music, dance, acrobatics, and aerial arts. The artists will present their breathtaking acts during tonight’s Art Walk at The Franklin Shops. The show will be hosted by the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre on August 25 and August 26. It is produced and directed by SW Florida circus artists Carla Hyde and Christar Damiano, who have a combined circus experience of over 50 years. Damiano: “Circus TransformUS is a celebration of the awakening of the human spirit.”
The Cool Collected Class of Bling
Southwest Florida artists and collector Bill Rogers presents an intriguing assemblage of mid-century Asian and Eastern European antiques, art, and jewelry in his shop on the mezzanine of The Franklin Shops. On Art Walk night, Rogers will introduce a new collection of imported contemporary and ethnic jewelry. These fantastic pieces are all handcrafted, featuring precious and semi-precious colored stones and Sterling Silver. It’s the cool collected class of bling – and an affordable work of body art.
