Moving image Museum Plans Henson Gallery
The Henson gallery and exhibition are the signature components of the Museum’s 25thanniversary campaign—the Museum opened to the public in 1988—for which $6 million of a $10 million goal has already been raised.
“The artistry, creativity, and innovation evident in Jim Henson’s creations are a wonderful complement to the Museum of the Moving Image’s dynamic collection,” said Commissioner Levin. “Henson and his partners worked here in New York long before the Muppets took Manhattan, and we are proud to joinThe Jim Henson Legacy, the Museum, and other supporters to provide future generations of artists and audiences with the opportunity to enjoy this remarkable gift.”
New York Mayor Bloomberg made the public announcement in a ceremony at the museum, joined by Miss Piggy and other special friends. Watch it, below:
