Mystery, Magic, and Mayhem: Wonders from the American Museum of Magic
Date and TimeMonday, January 14, 2013
Magic has been a topic of both interest and controversy that has enthralled audiences for hundreds of years. For some it's spiritualism, and for others it's strictly a performance art. This exhibition of magic history provides a window into the worlds of illusion, conjuring, mentalism, and escape artistry. On loan from the American Museum of Magic in Marshall, Michigan, are more than 30 stunning graphic visuals and related objects associated with legends such as Thurston, Houdini, and Michigan's own Harry Blackstone, Sr. An opening reception will be held Thursday, January 17, from 5-7 p.m. Free and open to the public. The exhibition continues through Wednesday, March 20, 2013. For more information please call the GVSU Art Gallery at 616-331-2563.
