Makeshift Circus
Makeshift Circus

MakeShift Circus performances had audiences mesmerized with their gravity-defying acts and hilarious clowning techniques. MakeShift Circus Collective is a group of social circus artists dedicated to promoting social circus around Atlanta.  These artists will be returning to the Woodruff Arts Center November 15th. Don’t miss another opportunity to say “hello!”

We tried out a new program today called SoundScapes! A string quartet from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performed Viennese music inspired by the Habsburg Splendor exhibition while families sketched still lifes and the performers themselves! This was one of our favorite sketches from the day!

What are YOU most excited about November 8th? How will you create, ATL?
