Summer Puppet Theater: Bringing Paintings to Life
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.
