In 1938, artist Albert Kelly painted a multi-panel mural entitled “The Circus” (it may also have been known as “Circus Parade”) for the children’s ward at the old Lincoln Hospital (then located at 141st St. and Southern Blvd.) in the Bronx. In 1976, the hospital moved to its present location on 149th St. The mural’s current status is unknown, but it was probably lost in the demolition of the old hospital c. 2010.
