Puppetry Photos - PuppetWorks - Art Exhibit
This summer PuppetWorks shares its passion for puppetry as a dynamic, living art form with Yucca Library! PuppetWorks productions come to life in many forms through the use of Blacklights, Hand & Rod puppets, Marionettes, Masks, and Costume Figures. Puppet Performances are used as a base for entertainment, education, and artistic expression, combining traditional art with contemporary theatrical elements. PuppetWorks strives to educate and enlighten audiences of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

Learn more about PuppetWorks and the art of puppetry at Yucca's Art Gallery! 

Join us for a Make-and-Take puppet program on June 18th from 1pm-2:30pm. Create your own puppets to take home while you learn about puppetry!
