The Center for Puppetry Arts opened to the public on September 23, 1978, when Kermit the Frog and his creator Jim Henson cut the ceremonial ribbon. Today it is the largest American non-profit organization solely dedicated to the art of puppet theater. The Center's story begins when a young puppeteer from Florida, Vincent Anthony, began touring with Nicolo Marionettes under the tutelage of Nicholas Coppola based out of New York. By 1966, he was ready for a smaller community where he could be an active partner and make a difference. He pursued the vision of a center that would promote puppetry and become a vital part of the community. He decided to call Atlanta home and created Vagabond Marionettes with Mitchell Edmonds.
As the largest American non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to the art of puppetry, the Center for Puppetry Arts presents original and touring puppet performances for children and adults year round. Its Worlds of Puppetry Museum houses the largest collection of Jim Henson puppets as well as an extensive Global Collection.
