Without "fences" to limit where his imagination could roam, 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. 'Jim Henson's Fantastic World' offers a rare peek into the imagination and creative genius of this multi-talented innovator and creator of Kermit the Frog, Big Bird and other beloved characters. The exhibition features original artworks, including drawings, cartoons and storyboards that illustrate Henson's talent as a storyteller and visionary. Among the variety of exhibition objects are puppets, television and movie props, photographs of Henson and his collaborators at work and original video productions, including excerpts from Henson's early career and experimental films.
