Títere, Loutka, Kukla… Puppet!
Rotating Exhibit
Love Family Atrium

Puppetry is a means of storytelling. As a result, different cultures often share the same basic components such as themes and character types. Títere, Loutka, Kukla… Puppet! is a rotating exhibit that highlights this common language by comparing two puppets from diverse uses and backgrounds. It demonstrates the way that the work of Jim Henson relates to the larger global picture of puppetry.
