“The Circus” is an exhibition of whimsical characters created by Staten Island artist Larry DiSalvo from a pile of junk at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum.
DiSalvo hopes to inspire others to see the world differently: “It’s fun to take something that should be thrown in the trash and make something from it, to make it alive. And when kids see my sculptures they love them, and come back and show me things that they make.”
“Il Circo” may be viewed during regular museum hours, with paid museum admission, until August 14, 2012.
