On April 7, 2022, the Department of Art and Art History and Georgetown College hosted a public dialogue around Toni-Lee Sangastiano’s Carnivalesque. She engaged in conversation with panelists:
- Sarah Houbolt, a Paralympian, diversity advocate, arts manager, and freak show, international circus, and physical theatre performer.
- Johnathan Lee Iverson, the youngest and first Black American Ringmaster of the iconic Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, which he served until its closing in 2017.
Toni-Lee Sangastiano’s artwork makes visible the people and spaces of the carnival, celebrating them in all of their wonder, glitter, grit, genius, and eccentricity. This event was held in conjunction with the exhibition Toni-Lee Sangastiano: Carnivalesque, on view in the Spagnuolo Gallery through May 23, 2022.
