Searsport — Penobscot Marine Museum has extended "The Circus Comes to Town" for another month. The free exhibit of circus models, art, photography and memorabilia will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Feb. 26.
The heart of the exhibit is The Bex Bros. Circus, a complete circus scene comprised of thousands of scale models depicting every element of a traditional circus including sideshows, clowns, trapeze artists and animal acts. Also on display are circus posters; circus art by Maine artists Alan Fishman, Nancy Morgan-Barnes and the late Waldo Peirce; and circus images from the museum's own collections of historic photography.
"The Circus Comes to Town" was scheduled to close at the end of January, but the exhibit's popularity on most winter weekends encouraged the museum to obtain an extension of the loan of The Bex Bros. Circus from its owner and creator, Capt. Les Bex of Camden. The exhibit is in the museum's Main Street Gallery at 40 E. Main St./Route 1. Admission is free
