The Jim Henson Exhibition at Museum of the Moving Image Fundraiser!

Just like the Center of Puppetry Arts asked for public support to complete their Henson exhibit, it seems Museum of the Moving Image is now looking to crowdfunding to complete theirs as well.

The exhibition will feature more than 40 original puppets — including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Elmo, Cookie Monster, the Fraggles, and a Skeksis from The Dark Crystal — as well as puppet prototypes, original character sketches, rare behind-the-scenes footage and photographs, and interactive puppetry design and performance experiences.

Just like most crowd sourcing there are a lot of great pledge incentives including memberships to the museum, an invitation to the opening reception, a signed copy of The Muppets Character Encyclopedia, Palisades Muppet toys, and a personalized autographed from a character performed by Dave Goelz!

For those with more than just disposable income a set of limited edition lithographs (also offered to help the Center of Puppetry Arts) is a available as well.

The video introducing the campaign is hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and features Bonnie Erickson as well as many frequent MOMI event Muppet fans including Matt Soberman, John Papovitch, and Mo Monster creator Sam.

You can watch the video and check all the great rewards in in more detail on their Kickstarter page!
