This exhibition celebrates Puppet Showplace Theater's 40th anniversary by showcasing decades of work by the theater's resident and affiliated artists. Historic puppet characters made by founder Mary Churchill and master puppeteer Paul Vincent-Davis will be presented alongside the work of New England-based puppet companies who have made Puppet Showplace their home. The exhibit will also showcase innovative work by young and emerging artists. Visit www.puppetshowplace.org to learn more.
