Elizabeth “Bunny” Herring: Still Swinging in Wonderland

Octogenarian and philanthropist Elizabeth “Bunny” Herring relives her youth every week by returning to the circus ring. The former St. Louis debutante left her privileged life to run away and join the circus when she was a teen. Now 88, she’s still flying high under the big top and sharing her passion for dance and entertainment with troubled teens and the elderly. HECs Victoria Babu caught up with her at the City Museum’s Circus Harmony.

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
