Written by: FFT Webmaster | April 26th, 2011

Jim Henson, the innovative puppeteer and creator of such pioneering television and film projects as SESAME STREET, THE MUPPETS and THE DARK CRYSTAL, will be feted this summer at the newly renovated Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. The exhibition Jim Henson’s Fantastic World will open on July 16 for a six month run, and will feature more than 120 works, including drawings, props, puppets and other ephemera from a career that spanned nearly 40 years. The exhibition, first mounted by the Smithsonian and the Jim Henson Legacy features original puppets like Kermit The Frog, Bert and Ernie and others from the Henson canon.
