Current Exhibit
Ralph LeCompte’s Art of the American Sideshow Exhibit

A fine art exhibition called “You Call Them Freaks, We Call Them Kindred” featuring Ralph LeCompte’s Art of the American Sideshow will run from March 8th to the 31st at The Art Center WSU Tri-Cities.

“A tribute to the inspiring and heroic “freaks” living in a world of no opportunity, where rejection, isolation, poverty or institutionalization were the norms. We salute those who defied disadvantage, beat expectations, succeeded financially, found love and built families. Every mirror reflects a freak, be it exterior or interior. Take a look, understand, be a kindred spirit.”- Ralph LeCompte
