The Jim Henson Exhibition Imagination Unlimited @ MoPop

When I was in Seattle a few weeks ago.
I decided to check out MoPop (Museum of Pop Culture) and see The Jim Henson Exhibition Imagination Unlimited.
It was so exciting to see emotionally and informative.
Bought happiness growing up watching Sesame Street, The Muppets, Fraggle Rocks & etc and sadness because Jim Henson died in 1990 which left a legacy of fun and imagination!
The photo of Jim holding Kermit at the entrance was the one that made me cry.

Here is the details from the site:
Organized by the Museum of the Moving Image, The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited explores Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on popular culture.

This comprehensive exhibition reveals how Henson and his team of builders, performers, and writers brought to life the enduringly popular worlds of The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and much more.

The exhibition features a broad range of artifacts related to Henson’s unparalleled career, including more than 20 puppets, character sketches, storyboards, scripts, photographs, film and television clips, behind-the-scenes footage, iconic costumes, and interactive experiences that allow visitors to try their hand at puppeteering on camera and designing a puppet.

Overall I really enjoyed this exhibition.
Not just shows the Muppets but from his beginnings until Labyrinth.
I was bummed that they didn’t have the clip of the song “The Rainbow Connection”.
Would have been icing on the cake!
If you have a chance to go down to Seattle, go and check out this exhibtion!
