Honor & Memory Gifts

Looking for a unique way to celebrate, honor, or memorialize a loved one? The Center for Puppetry Arts offers a variety of ways to do just that. Show the world your love of puppetry, give a special gift to a loved one, and help support the Center all at once!

Featured Creatures

“Featured Creatures” are personalized puppet nameplates installed right on the Center’s wall! Each nameplate is digitally printed with an image of a puppet from the Global Collection or the Jim Henson Collection, along with your inscription or dedication. You and your loved ones will be able to see your personal nameplate every time you visit the Center! If you wish, the Center can send a notification of your gift and nameplate dedication to your honoree or their family. Your Featured Creatures donation of $250 (for a 4x4-inch nameplate) or $1,000 (for a 9x9-inch nameplate) is fully tax-deductible and supports the Center’s Worlds of Puppetry Museum.

The 9x9-inch nameplate includes up to two lines of text. The first line can accommodate 33 characters; the second line can fit 22 characters. Blank spaces count as one character each.

The 4x4-inch nameplate includes up to three lines of text. The first two lines can accommodate 27 characters each. The third line can fit 17 characters. Blank spaces count as one character each.

Choose your favorite puppet from a selection of the Center’s collection items!
