KETCHUM, Idaho –The City of Ketchum Arts Commission is hosting “The Great Ketchum Toss Up” featuring the Mind of Marlin on Friday, August 17, at 7 p.m. in Ketchum Town Square.
Watch master juggler Marlin weave his magic, participate in an "Audience Tossing Symphony" and learn to juggle after the show! This event is free and open to the public.
Professional juggler, Marlin, graduated from the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Clown College and became a well-known, talking comedy juggler. His one-man show toured nationwide at over 350 colleges and universities and was featured on numerous television shows both in the U.S. and Europe. Marlin also headlined many comedy clubs throughout the nation and was the subject of a documentary titled "The Street Juggler."
Marlin applied his talent and passion for juggling to the fine arts where he created multiple roles for the Los Angeles Chamber’s production of "The Little Prince.” He went on to receive commissions to create interpretive juggling to classical music and to perform these pieces as a guest soloist with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra. Marlin is co-creator of "LUMA,” a human light show, which has become an internationally acclaimed theatrical production.

About the Ketchum Arts Commission
The Ketchum Arts Commission (KAC) was created by the City of Ketchum in 2007 with the objective of integrating arts and culture into the community’s life. Among its initiatives are Cover Art, the wrapping of utility boxes in downtown Ketchum; Art on Fourth; Street Art, which features manhole covers designed by local artists; and the development of policies and plans for public art in the community. At the KAC’s initiative, the city recently increased its Percent for Art Ordinance for public projects from 1.33 percent to 5 percent, which is believed to be higher than any other city in the country. The KAC is a division of the Ketchum Parks & Recreation Department and receives support from the Ketchum Community Development Corporation. The commission consists of local volunteers who are active in and passionate about the arts.
