NYC's New Permanent Jim Henson Exhibition
on 30 May 2017
NYC's Museum of the Moving Image has just announced their permanent exhibition of Jim Henson's incredible work and legacy will be opening 22 July 2017. From character sketches to photos, puppet prototypes, behind-the-scenes footage and (of course) actual Muppets, the show is sure to delight. On display will be 47 original puppets—including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Rowlf and Fraggle Cantus the Minstrel. Beyond "Sesame Street," Henson's legacy is remarkable—"The Muppets," "Fraggle Rock," "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth" continue to inspire. Many of the pieces on display have been kindly donated by the Henson family. Read more at Curbed.
