Cardboard Menagerie


Currently on at the Mariposa Museum in Peterborough, NH
"New Exhibition: Whimsical yet formidable, “Rich Entel’s Cardboard Menagerie” gives broken musical instruments a new body and a new voice. These angular and intricate sculptures are an ingenious fusion of fragmented musical instruments, discarded cardboard, and ancient texts transformed into a menagerie of soulful animals. Walking through this hall of spirits, you experience each disarmingly asymmetric beast unexpectedly morph in form and emotion. These pensive and playful shape-shifting creatures beckon with a broken musicality.
