Museum of Moving Image

The Scholars visited the Jim Henson Exhibition at the Museum of Moving Image to explore the intersection of art and digital media for themselves. Fascinated by Jim Henson’s rich history on Sesame Street and the Muppets, students viewed original costumes and hand made puppets. The interactive exhibit allowed students to film their own puppet shows together and experiment with adding audio and visual effects to what they recorded. At the museums classroom, scholars used a puppet of their choice to develop a storyboarded commercial advertising their own product.
