“Puppetry is a place where everyone can find a home,” Aretta Baumgartner, the Center’s Education Director, said in an interview with Lois Reitzes. “We’re hard-wired to tell stories through objects.”

The main component of the day is that the Center is getting a Tiny Door. That’s through artist Karen Anderson’s organization Tiny Doors ATL, which has become a prominent part of Atlanta’s public art scene.

All of the Tiny Door events are free and open to the public:

  • Tiny Door Ribbon Cutting and Toast at 12 p.m.;
  • Tiny Door Create-A-Puppet Workshop and Atlanta Puppetry Guild Demonstrations from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.;
  • Tiny Doors Concerts at 12:15, 1:15 and 2:15 p.m.
