NEA Honors Circus Sarasota Star Dolly Jacobs

By Marty Clear – BRADENTON HERALD
Awards and honors are nothing new for Sarasota native Dolly Jacobs. She’s been inducted into the Circus Ring of Fame and the Gallery of Acrobatic Legends. She received a Florida Folk Heritage Award three years ago from the Florida Department of State.

In 1988, in Monaco, she received the Silver Clown Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the circus world… But the award she received most recently was something special. Earlier this month, the National Endowment for the Arts named Jacobs a National Heritage Fellow. MORE
