Special Guests: The Institute of Jugglology

some assembly required We’re very excited to welcome this year’s special guests, the Institute of Jugglology! Ellen Winters and Galen Harp juggle to get out what’s inside. In 2005 they combined forces and established the Institute of Jugglology to craft new juggling that makes the world smile. Using juggling props instead of brushes, they create a surreal ephemeral painting during every performance. In 2014 they were awarded the gold medal at the International Juggling Championships for their routine “Mandala”, which they’ll be performing along with several other amazing pieces!
