Summer Puppet Theater: Bringing Paintings to Life

July 6, 2011

The Ogden’s second annual Summer Puppet Theater is out on the road, as our 2011 Teen Docents travel to libraries, schools and camps with a puppet show all about some of the Ogden’s most notable artwork. Working with local artist and puppeteer Karen Konnerth, the Teen Docents each chose a favorite painting from the museum and created a story — and whimsical puppets — based on the themes of the painting. The show, which includes six short performances, is a fun and accessible way for younger children to engage with the Ogden’s art, as skits including music, dancing and audience participation bring paintings to colorful, three-dimensional life. To find out where you can see a Summer Puppet Theater performance, or to book a show, contact Ellen Balkin at 504.539.9608 or
