The show about magician and escape artist Harry Houdini is the first major art museum exhibition to examine his life, legend and cultural influence. The Madison museum is its only Midwest venue.
The exhibit includes works by contemporary artists who have been influenced by Houdini, historic photographs, Art Nouveau-era posters and silent films.
Handcuffs, shackles, a straitjacket, a milk can and a packing trunk are also showcased in the context of their original presentation. There are also two of his private diaries that have never been shown in public.
