The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited
This is a guest post. What can I say? Jim Henson has always had my heart. I remember growing up and falling in love with all of Sesame Street’s characters.
Not to mention, The Muppet Show is a total classic. My
own kids grew up watching those lovable characters just like I did.
If you find yourself in Meridian, Mississippi, then stop by The MAX. The MAX is Meridian’s
renowned arts and entertainment center.
From now until May 4, they’re housing The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited… and you won’t want to miss out.
The exhibition features characters from shows like Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Fraggle
Rock and Dark Crystal. Moms and dads: you’ll definitely want to bring your kids.
It’ll be a trip down memory lane for you and a fantastic experience for them. Even though my kids are older, I know they would still enjoy the heck out of The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited at The Max!
In fact, everyone’s invited to view this heartwarming exhibition. Families, school groups and
people of all ages – it’s a treat whether you’re one or one-hundred!
Through the exhibition, you can immerse in Henson’s beloved characters. You can:
- Spot more than 20 puppets, including Kermit the Frog, Beaker, and Bert and Ernie
- Try puppeteering on camera
- Design your own puppet
- Explore character sketches
- View scripts and storyboards
- Watch film and television clips
- Glimpse rare behind-the-scenes footage
The exhibition boasts Henson’s early work in television of film. Folks: the Henson magic is in full-force at The Max. What are you waiting for?!
A few highlights to note: a 1978 Kermit puppet on display, some of Henson’s handwritten
scripts, Jen and Kira puppets from the Dark Crystal, costumes from Labyrinth… and so much
The exhibition will run through May 4 at The MAX. Visitors can either visit the Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited only or opt for tickets that also include viewing of permanent exhibitions.
