A few years ago Jennifer Clarke was preparing to participate in her first art show, the Side Show at the Yellow Cab Building. That show ended up being instrumental for Clarke in more ways than one as she began to realize her potential as a music photographer. October marks the opening of Clarke first solo photography exhibition focusing on pictures of local musicians. Clarke visited the WYSO studios to talk about her work on Kaleidoscope.
From its earliest days as a chance for local artists to how their work outside of a traditional gallery setting, the Dayton Side Show has lived up to its promise of being "an event of grand proportions." This year's show bring together over 200 artists, musicians and volunteers to create two free days of creativity at the Old Yellow Cab Building in downtown Dayton.
Nasty Bingo will perform as part of Side Show 8's Saturday evening lineup and gave a preview performance live from the WYSO studios.
Sideshow is an annual arts and music festival, created by members of the Dayton Circus Art Collective. The two-day event features over 50 visual artists and 20 musical acts in the Yellow Cab Building on 4th Street in downtown Dayton. Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt visited the Yellow Cab building ahead of Sideshow 7 as the artists prepared for a preview party. Here she speaks with several visual artists about what they'll be displaying at Sideshow 7.
