The New York Times has a piece today about a big donation of Jim Henson puppets to the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. 500 to 700 puppets. The article mentions a separate traveling Smithsonian exhibit that’ll make its first stop at the Arts Center on September 7. Just 13 will be on display, according to the article. That seems a little measly, but beggars can’t etc.
Just got word today that the Ark. Times is partnering with some folks to present a Jim Henson mini-film festival in October. More details when I’ve got them.
