Jim Henson's Fantastic World--September 2009

Jim Hensons Fantastic World Jim Hensons Fantastic World

This show was simply amazing, filled with sketches, screen printed posters film, activities for both children and adults and of course, muppets! It turely felt as if I was in Jim Henson's world. You really got to know who Jim was how much fun he had with his work. A lot was shown, from his early commerials -funny-, to Fraggle Rock, Dark Crystal and The Muppet Show. In addition to having his work on display, a great video biography was presented, as well as an extensive amount information on his work. I felt like I could have spent all day there. I was really taken by Jim's short film "Time Piece" his commercials, which I found really funny. There are some many things that I learned about Jim, just by viewing his work alone. I would highly recommend check out Jim's work, his legacy and his extraordinary creativity.

Organized by The Jim Henson Legacy and the Smithsonian Institution, The Henson family, Jim Henson Co., The Muppets Studio, LLC, and Sesame Workshop. This amazing exhibition was made posiable by The Biography Channel. Additional support has been provided by The Jane Henson Foundation and Cheryl Henson.
