Tribute to Jim Henson, Creator of the Muppets

I Love You, Jim – Sebastien Mesnard

More Muppets goodness! To celebrate Jim Henson, most well-known for creating the Muppets and working on Sesame Street, Nucleus has invited over 30 artists to contribute artwork to an exhibition dedicated to the famous American puppeteer. From now until January 2, 2012, Nucleus will be showcasing the tribute exhibition titled The Lovers, The Dreamers, And Me. Coinciding with the release of Disney's The Muppets motion picture, this show is an amazing opportunity to check out some great artwork and maybe even buy a print or two.
