Christmas Treasures from MoMI’s Jim Henson Collection
Friday, Dec 18, 2020 at 7:00 pm
Make this a merry Muppet holiday season by joining us for a special behind-the-scenes exploration of characters, stories, and rarely displayed material from Jim Henson’s many Christmas-related productions. Barbara Miller, curator of The Jim Henson Exhibition, will offer viewers special access to puppets and other objects in MoMI’s collection from a variety of beloved holiday classics, which include Emmet Otter’s Jug-band Christmas, The Christmas Toy, and The Great Santa Claus Switch. She and special guests Cheryl Henson, performer Dave Goelz, and Karen Falk, Archives Director at The Jim Henson Company and Vice President of the Jim Henson Legacy, will unwrap the stories behind these productions and objects, some of which have not been on view at the Museum, and take questions from the audience.
