The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited – January 11, 2023

Quota Club recently partnered with Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services to sponsor a free night at the Grand Rapids Art Museum for children and their families! On January 11, 2023, children and their families explored the exhibition learning about Jim Henson, his beloved Sesame Street muppets, and the movies he helped create. Families also participated in an art workshop to create their own finger puppets! It was a blast! Thanks to D&HHS for helping us bring this special night to life!

Quota Club members welcomed children and families to a special night at the Grand Rapids Art Museum!  Families use materials supplied by the museum to make their own finger puppets to take home. The Jim Henson exhibition included interactive stations for children to create a muppet, then view it on a monitor as it would look on TV. Families explored the exhibit visiting their favorite muppets like Kermit the Frog!
