Skirball Cultural Center - Family Puppet Festival

About the Skirball:
For the Skirball Cultural Center, which opened in 1996, the arts serve as a vehicle to explore and forge connections among individuals, cultures, and communities. Rooted in Jewish heritage and the values of community, diversity, and caring for the world around us, the Skirball realizes its mission through exhibitions, performances, films, festivals, and educational offerings for people of different ages and backgrounds. With the 2007 opening of Noah’s Ark at the Skirball, an award-winning exhibition that contains nearly 400 life-sized animals—including more than thirty puppets made from repurposed materials—the Skirball established itself as a major venue for diverse family audiences to experience the power of the arts and of community.
