Home > Museum > The Art of Puppet Making Series


A rotating exhibition series, The Art of Puppet Making showcases the talent and vision of extraordinary puppet-makers. Puppet making is an all-encompassing endeavor. No other art form blends the disciplines of sculpture, drawing, and painting with the laws of physics and gravity, as well as the science of anatomy. From the archives of the Center for Puppetry Arts and the private collections of puppet makers, come these collections of unique visuals that will broaden your understanding and appreciation for the artistry involved in creating puppets.
