New York's Museum of the Moving Image Celebrates Jim Henson

Families in New York have a great reason to head out to Astoria, Queens, where the Museum of the Moving Image has a new exhibit that sounds ideal for grownups and kids alike. “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World” celebrates the creativity and ingenuity of the artist behind iconic TV programs “Sesame Street” and “The Muppet Show.”

According to the New York Times, the exhibit traces Henson’s development from his Mississippi childhood and Maryland high school and college years until his far-too-early death in 1990 and includes film and video clips as well as sketches, notes, photographs, television pitches, storyboards, and even doodles and office memos.

Special screenings and events will run through September 25. “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World” runs through January 16 at the Museum of the Moving Image, 35th Avenue at 36th Street, Astoria, Queens. Visit movingimage.us for more information.
