Houdini Art and Magic heading to L.A.

The popular exhibition, Houdini Art and Magic, has closed at The Jewish Museum in New York and is now traveling to the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles where it's due to open on April 28, 2011.

The Skirball Center will also feature an additional retrospective of Jewish magicians, Masters of Illusion: Jewish Magicians of the Golden Age, along with special programing.

One notable change to the Houdini Art and Magic exhibition will be the inclusion of John Gaughan's authentic working replica of Houdini's Water Torture Cell. The Gaughan replica will ONLY be displayed at this L.A. stop.

I live not far from the Skirball, so you can count on complete coverage of the exhibition and special events here at WILD ABOUT HARRY.


  1. I'm surprised you're still here posting and not lined up outside the door already.

    I would be. =)

  2. woot! This is a blast. I'm so there!

  3. Any idea how long the exhibition will run? I will be in LA in November. I know these museum exhibits sometimes run for months.

  4. Unfortunately, it only runs through Sept. 4, 2011. But it will be at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco Sept. 30 to Jan 16, if you're heading up north.

  5. We are looking forward to seeing this display!
