As they prepare for the Cleveland Museum of Art’s 2011 Parade the Circle, six guest artists sprawl their talents out across the large outdoor tent, combining sculpture, painting, scenic design, construction, and clothing design to collaborate on the three giant puppets that will tell the Hindu myth of Shakuntala, the love story of a cursed princess.
Parade the Circle
We're just 3 weeks away from the Parade the Circle 2011 on Saturday, June 11 at noon. The guest artists are already in town and parade participants are busy crafting creations in the tent. Enjoy some highlights from last year in this video.
In this new series, we will periodically be sharing sounds that give a behind the scenes perspective of all that is going on at the museum. First up, check out this sound from Parade the Circle 2010.

If you’ve been reading about our annual Parade the Circle event this year, you may know a little about our guests, La Troupe des Masques de Boni. These artists, musicians, and dancers are from Burkina Faso, on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert in Africa.
Since May 27, we’ve been hosting artists from Boni, Burkina Faso. The artists will headline the 21st annual Parade the Circle event on Saturday, June 12, and be featured in the Going Global Family Day to open our newest galleries on Sunday, June 27.
