George Latshaw, widely regarded as a dean of American puppetry, stated: “Women have played such a major role in the renaissance of puppetry in the United States that is seems redundant to mention that they have been the equal of men from the pioneering days of the 1920s. Women have been contributors to all aspects of the field: as researchers; bibliographers; book authors; experimenters; playwrights; performers; producers; designers; directors; manufacturers; and educators. Puppetry in the United States was ‘liberated’ forty years before the women’s lib surfaced as a national movement.”
Sixteen amazing women are featured in an exhibit which covers all of the careers Mr. Latshaw mentions. A unique program featuring inspirational women in puppetry has been put together for groups such as Red Hat Ladies, church guilds, sororities, business, civic groups, and bus tours.
The Puppetry Arts Institute is offering this program with a special Vivilor box lunch for $20 per person. We can accommodate 40 people. Tours of exhibit without the box lunch are available at reduced rate.

Artist Bernard Perlin designed some of the most iconic American propaganda posters of World War II. As an artist-correspondent for LIFE and FORTUNE magazines, he sketched major military personnel and noted political figures. He accompanied commando missions into Nazi-occupied Greece, recorded the preparations for the final air war on Japan, and was aboard the USS MISSOURI for the formal Japanese surrender.
Upon his return to the United States, Perlin became a noted painter, with works now in the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and other major institutions. His illustrations appeared in popular magazines through the 1960s. Perlin continued to paint until his death in January 2014 at the age of 95.
Bernard Perlin: An Artist Goes to War is the first retrospective of Perlin's incredible work as a war artist. Join us for an exhibit of his work at the Kirksville Art Center November 7, 2014-January 3, 2015.
