Promotional poster.

The Art of the Muppets was a touring exhibit which made its debut at the Lincoln Center in New York City in 1979.

Various posters and promotional materials were created to garner interest in a nationwide tour which included puppets from several Jim Henson productions including Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, the "Land of Gorch" characters used during the first season of Saturday Night Live and one of Henson's earliest series, Sam and Friends.

A book was released in conjunction with the tour, The Art of the Muppets.
