“2014 New Acquisitions : A Selection’

The year 2014 has provided a number of important and unusual gifts to the Museum's puppet holdings and library research collections.  Fifteen individuals or couples have contributed the 110 puppets and 30 items for our archive/research library.  This years puppet gifts are especially rich in the puppet art of Thailand and Burma (Myanmar), as well as Indonesia and some from other Asian countries.  The museum has also received a large gift of Seattle area puppets by the well know puppeteers, Joan King and Jean Mattson selected from three of their major productions of the third quarter of 20th century.  A scattering of other puppets from elsewhere around the globe are also included.  Research is ongoing and the curator will be delighted to share new insights and information as time goes on.  

We thank you for your past support of the Museum, its collections and its programs.  And we welcome your ongoing interest and support in the months and years ahead as together we build this unique treasure in the central Sound.  Through the eyes of the Greek philosopher Plato let us shine a bright light on this special communication and cultural treasure.

Stanley Hess,
Museum Curator
