'Puppets: World on a String' 

When: Through June 3
Phone: 802-985-3346
From Sesame Street to *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” music video to Being John Malkovich to Bread and Puppet’s timeless, timely productions, the (sometimes-sinister) allure of puppets is unlikely to ever fade. Opening on Saturday, February 17, an exhibition at the Shelburne Museum pays tribute to the quintessentially human art form, from the Muppets of Jim Henson to Andy Warhol’s snapshot of Howdy Doody. Whether they hang from strings or fit on hands, are made from old socks or fine textiles, one thing is certain: The puppet is not the sole domain of children.
