Where To Walk When You Stay…. Center for Puppetry Arts

 

The city of Atlanta is filled with exciting shops, restaurants, and theaters—and the Artmore is in the heart of it all! Our guests are fortunate to be within walking distance to the best that the city has to offer. In this series we will feature some of the spots that make Atlanta great.Logo-01

The Center for Puppetry Arts is the nation’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to the art of puppetry. The Center focuses on three areas: performance, education, and museum. It is one of the few puppet museums in the world and is located just five minutes away from the Artmore Hotel.

 

 

10154280_10203380894308211_4241266697180349127_n

In 1978, founder Vincent Anthony opened the doors to the Center along with Jim Henson and the famous Kermit the Frog. Since its opening, the Center, housed in the former Spring Street Elementary School building, has brought joy to families around the world and has been a hidden treasure here in the south.

When you go to visit the Center, make sure you are ready to explore and have fun all day! Start by visiting the museum where you will see puppets from all around the world and various time periods. Some puppets that you can see in the collection include Wayland Flowers’ Madame; a Skeksis from Jim Henson’s film The Dark Crystal; a mask prototype created by Julie Taymor for the Broadway smash-hit, The Lion King; and Jim Henson’s Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and Pigs In Space.

10171701_10203380969710096_3270995659228337139_n

After that, continue on to view one of the Center’s award-winning shows. The Center hosts many top notch touring puppetry artists from around the world, but also produces its own work. The Center is renowned for their own productions that go from conception of the idea, to writing the script and songs, to building the puppets and sets, and finally rehearsal—everything is done on-site. This is a process that can take around 16 months of hard work from the directors, builders, puppeteers, and the rest of the team at the Center.

1538703_10203380978230309_4947790650758512409_n

Not only does the Center specialize in award winning original productions, they also are famous for retelling classics that everyone in the family can enjoy. Some of these include Charlotte’s Web, Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer® (which looks exactly like the 1964 TV classic).

After the show, you are invited to make your own puppet to take home in the Create-A-Puppet Workshop. The puppet design changes with each new stage production, and features a different puppetry style, so each visit is a new experience.

10171270_10203380980350362_2788700897203463170_n

The Center for Puppetry Arts offers more than just a museum or a show; they make sure you leave with a happy memory. With 13 UNIMA Awards (the art form’s highest honor, bestowed by the Union Internationale de la Marionnette – the international puppetry organization) and various other accomplishments, the Center has a ton of room to boast. But it remains humble yet entertaining, and fun yet extremely professional.
