Before it moves on to New York, London and Hong Kong, head to Uconn's Contemporary Art Galleries for a glimpse of The Pedagogical Puppet: Projects by Sally Smart, Australian artist Sally Smart's creation, featuring short films (with puppets), a marionette (glorified puppet) of Smart herself, a storyboard (puppets) detailing the creation of the exhibit (about puppets) and the actual scripts for the (puppet) films. Pictured here is Marie Boyette, assistant professor-in-residence, dramatic arts, rehearsing a dance sequence (with a puppet). Is there a theme to it all? Probably, but who really cares. Man, I love puppets.
