Opening today, timed to coincide with DragonCon and the 30th anniversary of Labyrinth, Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts has put together a special exhibit of items from the Jim Henson movie. Running from September 2, 2016 until September 3, 2017, visitors can see many of the puppets, props, art and even one of David Bowie’s infamous Goblin King costumes on display.
The Center for the Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia is already a treasure trove of puppets and Jim Henson exhibits. Many of the pieces in the exhibit come from the center’s own collection. During DragonCon, many in-themed events will take place, including a costume contest presided over by Brian Henson and a masquerade ball.
The photos posted on the Center for Puppetry Arts’ Facebook page tease at just how great this exhibit is. If you’re like me and can’t make it to the exhibit, there will be events held around the country for the 30th anniversary, including big screen showings. The theater showings are probably going to be far more attended than the movie ever was in it’s original run.
