3rd Annual Puppet Art Show
The Puppet Art Show will take place on Friday and Saturday from 6pm until midnight and 5pm until 9:30pm on Sunday and will feature all kinds of puppets including pieces related to the Muppets. Price of admission is $5 for adults and children get in free.
Presenting artists Benjamin Sawinski goes on to describe his enthusiasm for the art show as:
“I personally am extremely excited to have the ability to put on such a show with the support of so many groups and artists. Its just a fun show that everyone can enjoy. Every person has a connection to a puppet of some sort. Every artist I talk to has at least one that they want to paint. Ibex puppetry and Heather Henson came through and helped us out a ton with this show in many ways. They really are the kind of people you want on you side when doing something of this nature.
The show will be a very diverse mix of styles and interpretations. We did a smaller show back in April (2011) and were amazed with the turn out and support. Just goes to show that everyone still holds a strong bond to their childhood memories. Memories we all share together, no matter what your age.”
