> DESCRIPTION
An homage to arguably the oldest art form, this exhibit examines the history and role of storytelling in the preservation of culture and transference of community values. Showcasing puppets, mythical characters and creatures are presented as heroes, villains, wise elders, or tricksters on their journey to fulfillment. Featuring both traditional tales and lesser known legends
from around the world, this exhibit celebrates the universal human experience captured so sublimely in our stories.
