Back in the late 1970s, superstar Muppet Kermit the Frog and his creator, Jim Henson, helped open Atlanta's Center for Puppetry Arts. Now, nearly 40 years later, Henson's work will be celebrated in a dramatically expanded space.
Right now, construction is happening on a massive renovation and expansion of the Center for Puppetry Arts. The project will include a large collection of Henson's puppets and artifacts (donated to the Center by the late puppeteer's family), new museum and Global Collection, and a renovated entryway. Museum officials say the project will not only completely change the look of the building, but also protect and preserve one-of-a-kind puppets.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken got a rare chance to walk-through the construction zone, and chat with museum staffers about the exciting changes coming soon.
