Brian Jay Jones

Acclaimed biographer Brian Jay Jones showcases the life and work of Jim Henson, from his early television and commercial work, through his work as an avant-garde filmmaker and documentarian, and into Sesame Street, Saturday Night Live, and The Muppet Show. Using a multi-media presentation, including rare video footage, Jones will explore films like The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, as well as TV fare like The Storyteller and Fraggle Rock.

Jones—who grew up in New Mexico and is a graduate of UNM—will provide some insight into Henson's little-known New Mexico connections.
