Bonnie Erickson, Caroly Wilcox, and Rollie Krewson all worked with Jim Henson for decades, designing and building beloved puppet characters for Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, and beyond. Join us for a live online conversation about what it took to bring such characters as Elmo, Miss Piggy, and Fizzgig from sketch to screen, illustrated by rare, behind-the-scenes photos.
