Magic has long 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 over thirty stunning graphic visuals and related objects associated with legends such as Thurston, Houdini, and Michigan’s own Harry Blackstone, Sr.
This exhibit will run to Wednesday, March 20, 2013. An opening reception will be held today from 5-7 PM.
