Mission Statement

In 1978 Kermit the Frog accompanied by his creator, Jim Henson, cut the ribbon officially opening the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. The Center was the vision of founder Vincent Anthony for a new arts institution in Atlanta - a magical place where art and education intersect to stimulate creativity and learning. Today the Center is the largest nonprofit in the U.S. dedicated to the art of puppetry. Widely regarded as a cultural treasure, the Center delights audiences of all ages with sophisticated, fully staged puppetry shows; museum exhibits putting puppetry into global, cultural and historical contexts; and arts infused education programs meeting state or national curriculum standards to enhance classroom learning in a unique way.


Support the Center for Puppetry Arts with your time! A wide range of volunteer opportunities is available. We welcome anyone 16 YEARS OF AGE and up with a variety of skills and backgrounds. Our ideal volunteer candidate is able to commit to a significant length of time, whether that be weekly or monthly, and/or be available for special events and periodic needs. Visit our website to download the Volunteer Application, which is the first step to becoming a volunteer at the Center for Puppetry Arts! It also includes a background check consent form, which must be processed before all volunteers begin their time here. An orientation meeting with the volunteer coordinator also is required.
