Center for Puppetry Arts Museum and Behind-the-Scenes Tour

Limit: 40 Sold Out | Cost $10

Description:

This ASTR field trip to the Center for Puppetry Arts, the premier exhibit and performance space devoted to puppetry in the US, includes admission to the Worlds of Puppetry Museum and an ASTR-only Behind-the-Scenes Tour. Participants will spend half of their visit viewing the Center's international puppet collection, which features Muppets, War Horse's Topthorn, and a special exhibit, curated by Professor Kathy Foley, on Indian puppetry. During the other half, participants will take a guided tour into the puppet storage areas, research library, puppet building workshop, and performance spaces. Participants will meet in the hotel lobby at 1:15 and depart by 1:30 in order to travel together via the MARTA rail system ($5-7 roundtrip). The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is wheelchair accessible and all Center for Puppetry Arts events are ADA compliant. All members of the group must be present at the Center for Puppetry Arts before the tour/exhibit stroll can begin. Please contact the event organizers, Dassia Posner d-posner@northwestern.edu, and Claudia Orenstein corenste@hunter.cuny.edu in advance if you need to travel a different way, by taxi, for instance, so they are aware of your plans and can work with you. Participants are responsible for their own travel costs.
