Jim and Jane Henson: Creative Work, Creative Play
April 5–October 8, 2017
Jim and Jane Henson, best known as creators of the Muppets, made Greenwich their home from 1964 until 1971. This was an intensely formative and inventive period for them, both at work and while raising their children on Round Hill Road. Through paintings, objects, puppets, photographs and film, this exhibition will examine the overlap of the Hensons’ family life with their contributions as artists, performers and parents to the early years of Sesame Street and The Mead School.
