Dozens of working artists, in three historic river communities along scenic Route 79 (Clarksville, Louisiana and Hannibal), open their studios and galleries for visitors. The artists and artisans answer questions about how their art is created.
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.
