Henson, puppet films, to UCA

Posted By on Mon, Aug 29, 2011 at 10:17 AM


Heather Henson, the daughter of the late Jim Henson and an artist and puppeteer herself, opens UCA's Artist in Residence Series with a four-day film festival featuring marionette, finger puppet and paper cutout performances.

The films will be shown at 7 p.m. Sept. 12-15 in Stanley Russ Hall room 103, and a children's program at 11:30 a.m. Sept. 17 at the Faulkner County Library, 1900 Tyler St., Conway.

Henson will be joined by Tim Lagasse, a puppet master, filmmaker, editor and television director who has designed and built puppets for PBS, Nickelodeon, Disney and Comedy Central; Lyon Hill, a puppet-maker with Columbia Marionette Theatre, and Sam Hale, an illustrator, sculptor, puppet designer and builder.
