Circuses and carnivals feature clowns, contortionists, and exceptional humans of many varieties. There might be animals, wild and domestic, and rides, romantic and terrifying. And there's a troupe of intriguing people passing through your town in the midsummer heat.

Alexander Calder - Jean Painleve - Le Grand Cirque Calder
Don MacKinnon

The best grandfather ever

I remember being so little and my parents marched me into the Whitney and I just locked up in front of this video, playing on a television beside the actual wire sculptures of the cirque Calder. I wouldn't leave. I watched it over and over. The sword swallower! The lion tamers. His complete seriousness throughout. Sound effects. Everything. It was (and remains) deeply inspirational to me.
