"PUNCH'S PROGRESS: A CENTURY OF AMERICAN PUPPETRY"
2000-11-19 until 2000-12-31
Detroit Institute of Art
Detroit, MI, USA

The character of Punch first appeared in America prior to the Revolutionary War when his destruction by a dog at a local fair was reported in the Virginia Gazette. Since that time, the art of puppetry has become a significant part of American popular culture, repeatedly adapting to shifting audience interests as well as the introduction of motion pictures and television.

Punch's Progress: A Century of American Puppetry traces the changing face of American Puppetry from 1850 to 1950, with examples from The Detroit Institute of Arts' Paul McPharlin Collection of Puppetry and Theatre Arts.

PUPPET FESTIVAL
In celebration of this exhibition, the DIA presents a performance festival running concurrently with the exhibit. Every weekend at 3p.m. a children's matinee will be presented, along with three special evening performances in December for adults and young adults.
