Back in November I reported all about an upcoming traveling exhibit is being organized by The Jim Henson Legacy and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service - titled "Jim Henson's Fantastic World". This unique traveling exhibit will include puppets, artwork, photographs, production documents, artifacts, props and videos (more information here).
The exhibit is planned to launch in September and tour until June 2010, making ten stops across the USA. Now I said I would keep you posted as soon as the tour details and locations are announced. Well, four of the ten tour stops have been announced, and here they are:
• 12/15/07 - 03/09/08: Arizona Museum for Youth, Mesa, AZ
• 07/12/08 - 10/05/08: Museum of History & Industry, Seattle, WA
• 10/25/08 - 01/18/09: Atlanta History Center, Atlanta, GA
• 09/05/09 - 11/29/09: James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, PA
So if any of these locations are near you, then make sure you mark your calendar. And if they somewhat near you, then make sure to start planning your road trip. But if these locations are "too far" for you there's still hope – as six more tour stops are still unannounced. More tour locations and dates will be announced when the bookings are finalized - I'll keep you posted.
