Repost: [nwsfs-announcements] NWSFS SFM Outing: Jim Henson's Fantastic World

Sunday – August 02, 2009 – 1:00 PM NWSFS Outing to the Science Fiction Museum for: Jim Henson's Fantastic World

Jim Henson (1936-1990)—artist, puppeteer, film director and producer—created elaborate imaginary worlds filled with unique characters, objects, environments and even languages and cultures. His work is enjoyed in dozens of languages in more than 100 countries. Jim Henson's Fantastic World offers a rare peek into the imagination and creative genius of this multitalented innovator and creator of Kermit the Frog, Big Bird and other beloved characters. See web site for details of exhibit:

Though the exhibit is open from 10:00 am - 7:00 pm, let’s gather near the ticket counter at 1pm to enter. We need 15 people for a group rate, but many of you already have memberships we may not be able to reach 15 non members. Also, on the NWSFS web site we have a $5 coupon.

If you plan to attend, please let us know by July 31: Email at or call the NWSFS info hotline 360.438.0871. Thanks

Fun Fact: During a scene in The Muppets Take Manhattan, the film makers needed to show rats making pancakes. The crew tried paint, which was so caustic it etched stainless steel bowls, but ended up with real pancake batter
