Join us during UConn’s Alumni Weekend at an open house for UConn Puppet Alumni, on Saturday, June 4 from 3 to 5 p.m. The Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry on UConn’s Depot Campus will host an open house event to welcome UConn Puppet Alumni and the people who love them.
Join us for snacks and refreshments and meet with other puppet alumni. We will offer free tours of our two new exhibitions devoted to the work of our namesake: Frank Ballard: An Odyssey of a Life in Puppetry, (curated by puppet alumna Rolande Duprey) and Frank Ballard: Roots and Branches.
Help us with our on-going documentation of Puppet Arts history by recording your stories and thoughts about your work here, Frank Ballard, and other aspects of UConn puppetry.
We will be happy to show you what we are doing at the Ballard Institute, including our workshops, forums, traveling exhibitions, conference(s), tours, and ongoing preservation, digitization, repair, and cataloguing projects.
Hope to see you on June 4!
