Designing Costumes and Set Pieces for the Circus

Designing Costumes and Set Pieces for the Circus

My Life with the CircusWe hear from Houstonian Jim Seigler, who spent much of his career designing set pieces and costumes for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

He later worked designing displays for Foley’s in Houston.

An exhibit of some of his sketches, called My Life with the Circus, was featured at Houston’s Hyde Park Gallery this summer.
