Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, for a night of striking artwork and bizarre attractions. Afraid of clowns? Do stay at home. They’ll be ever-present, hanging from the walls and possibly greeting you in person. Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim is hosting featured artist Michael White’s circus-themed group show, Behind the Striped Curtain tonight (Feb. 12), from 7-11 pm. Want to know what exists behind the curtain? Keep reading.

A brilliant collection of circus art, the show features 35 paintings by White plus works by about 21 other spectacular artists handpicked by Nick Rothweiler, Rothick’s Co-owner, and White. His work for this show is primarily acrylics on wood panels and was all freshly created within the last year. A couple sculptures from other artists will also be on display. “I’ve seen a good portion of the art that’s coming into this show, and it’s just mind-blowing. Every single thing I’ve seen so far is amazing,” says White, who is “overwhelmingly humbled and proud of this show.”
