If you’re in the New York City area and haven’t been to the Museum of the Moving Image to see the Jim Henson’s Fantastic World exhibit yet, then I have two messages for you: For whyyyyyy??? and You are now officially running out of time.
The exhibit is only around until March 4th, so you still have about 7 weeks left, and the good people at the Museum of the Moving Image have sent us a list of Muppet-related events going on to entice you even further. Below, you’ll see some Muppet Show and Muppet movie screenings, puppetry workshops, and events for the exhibit’s closing weekend.
