NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - The 2015 season at the Yale School of Art is opening with an exhibition devoted to the world of the American sideshow.

More than 70 works from 29 artists will be exploring the history of the shows, which traditionally have displayed the abnormal and bizarre.

The pieces from artists including Diane Arbus, Otto Dix and John Waters range from the mid-18th century to the present. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, Yale University Art Gallery and other institutions contributed art inspired by circus and carnival culture for the exhibition.

It also will feature original sideshow banners, props and photographs.

The exhibition will be on view from Jan. 13 through March 20. It is free and open to the public.
