Shelburne Museum's World On A String

01/11/2018 12:20PM ● By John Gales
Shelburne Museum’s forthcoming exhibition, Puppets: World on a String, will be on view in the Pizzagalli Center for Arts and Education’s Colgate Gallery from February 17, 2018 until June 3, 2018. This immersive exhibition will transport visitors into magical realms where animals speak, shadows come alive, and politicians face their harshest critics. Storytelling and the visual arts collide in this exciting exhibition featuring multimedia works of art by local and national artists. From 19th century marionettes to contemporary digital installations, these works push the boundaries of our concepts of this age-old art form. Puppets: World on a String celebrates the wonder of puppets while investigating the ways that puppet theater mediates between worlds both real and imagined. Artists featured include: Frank Ballard, Sarah Frechette, Laura Heit, Jane Henson, Jim Henson, Christina Jankowski, Rick Meyerowitz, Tony Oursler, Margo and Rufus Rose, Peter Schumann, Betsy Tobin, and Andy Warhol.
