Cirque Gets Visual

Strip entertainment giant Cirque du Soleil is taking over the art scene this month with two big events. The first is Safewalls (Trifecta Gallery in the Arts Factory, 107 E. Charleston Blvd., Suite 135, through Aug. 26), a touring collection of vintage-style circus posters reimagined by contemporary artists. Frank Kozik, Chet Zar and local Casey Weldon created three creepily beautiful Zumanity posters, while Vegas native Amy Sol’s ethereal poster (pictured) makes us wish we could crawl into her visual world. If you prefer your Cirque art in 3-D, then the second event is for you. Sculptor of Cirque performers Richard MacDonald visits his gallery at CityCenter to say hi to fans (1-5 p.m. Aug 14, The Art of Richard MacDonald at Crystals).

R.J. Reynolds taped a sheet of college-ruled notebook paper to a cocktail table near the outdoor stage that said, “To perform, just write your name.” The June night was young and attendance was sparse—the first three performers recycled a few times. The house band jammed, a self-proclaimed math geek vivisected his romantic dystopia and somebody read from a collection of somebody else’s poems. This was the scene in the Arts Factory’s backyard at the ninth Talky Trees, a multimedia art gathering every first Saturday of the month. And I wasn’t sure I wanted to hang around.
