  • Motor City Puppet Blast
    Motor City Puppet Blast 7/25 3:30PM
     

    Every other year, the Puppeteers of America hosts festivals that bring the best and brightest puppeteers to the region. This year's Great Lakes Regional Puppetry Festival comes to Detroit, bringing three days of award-winning shows to the DIA. It all kicks off with the award-winning The Snowflake Man by puppeteer Sarah Frechette (aka Penny Pup from the children's TV show SeeMore's Playhouse), which takes a look at the life of photographer W.A. Bentley with hand-carved traditional Czech marionettes and watercolor paintings. The Snowflake Man plays at 3:30 p.m. at 5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org. Check the dia.org for the full schedule. The puppet shows are free with museum admission (and free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties).
