STOCKBRIDGE, MASS.- Norman Rockwell Museum presents Tony Sarg: Genius at Play, the first comprehensive exhibition exploring the life, art, and adventures of Tony Sarg (1880-1942), the charismatic illustrator, animator, puppeteer, designer, entrepreneur, and showman who is celebrated as the father of modern puppetry in North America and the originator of the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloons, floats, and animated store windows.

On view from June 10 through November 5, 2023, this new exhibition will present original illustrations, marionettes, animations, interactive elements, and ephemera, including stage sets, illustrated books, commercial products, and archival photographs.

Curated by Norman Rockwell Museum Chief Curator Stephanie Haboush Plunkett and guest curator Lenore D. Miller, Curator Emerita of the George Washington University Museum, Tony Sarg: Genius at Play was organized in collaboration with the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA), who holds an extensive collection of Sarg’s original work, gifted by Sarg who was a long-time Nantucket summer resident. The exhibition will be on tour following its debut at NRM, appearing at NHA in 2024.
