Jim Henson (1936-1990)—artist, puppeteer, film director and producer—created elaborate imaginary worlds filled with unique characters, objects, environments and even languages and cultures. Beginning December 15, fans of all ages will be able to get a firsthand look at his imagination and creative genius with the debut of "Jim Henson's Fantastic World," a new exhibition coming to the Arizona Museum for Youth (AMY) in downtown Mesa. It will remain on view through March 9, 2008.
AMY is the only museum in the Southwest—and only the second in the nation—to host this unique exhibit that documents Henson's remarkable process of visual thinking. This exhibition offers a rare peek into the imagination and creative genius of this multitalented innovator and creator of many beloved characters. Featuring 100 original artworks, drawings, cartoons, storyboards, rare artifacts and film props, and Muppets and Creatures, the exhibit highlights Henson's talent as a storyteller and visionary.
Organized by The Jim Henson Legacy and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in cooperation with the Henson family, The Jim Henson Company, The Muppets Studio, LLC, and Sesame Workshop, "Jim Henson's Fantastic World" is made possible by The Biography Channel. Additional support has been provided by The Jane Henson Foundation and Cheryl Henson. The Signature Sponsors of the exhibit are The Arizona Republic, Dee and John Whiteman and the Arizona Museum for Youth Friends, Inc. Additional support provided by Raising Arizona Kids Magazine and M&I Bank. Programming support provided by the Maricopa County Library District.
